We used GoLocalise to voice several of our films in Vietnamese. The service was friendly and professional. Being able to attend the recording sessions gave me confidence; the sound engineer had taken a lot of time to familiarise himself with our films and scripts, and the voice talents were incredibly competent and good at adapting to any changes in the scripts as we recorded. The whole process was incredibly smooth and I felt in safe hands.

Flemish voice over
Case Study

Here is a client that always brings a great deal of challenge and fun.

The client provided us with 14 instructional videos that needed to be translated and voiced in many different languages including Japanese, German, Spanish and as shown in this example, Flemish. After recommending a number of our best talents for the job, once chosen we set our sights on nailing the voiceovers. With a rapid English guide voice and the client’s need for the talent to be in rough sync, this wasn’t an easy task for us.

Thanks to the spotless translation and the sound engineers bag of tricks we were able to set a pace that could match the guide and at the same time sound natural.

With the talent pushed to her limit for the whole recording session, after 14 videos and a great deal of water and hot tea with honey we could happily declare the session complete for the clients pleasure, and ours too!

Corporate & Presentations Voice Over

Are you looking for a voice over for your corporate video or presentation?

Then you’ve found the right place. At GoLocalise we are committed to ensuring our clients have the right tone to represent their company, service or product and we will work with you to present your message in the best possible way, so that you can impress your clients and prospects.

Once the video has been shot and edited, it’s paramount that the accompanying voice over comes across as knowledgeable about the brand and excited about the company and the services they offer. A bad voice over can make a video fall flat and impact your company’s brand and image.

Promo Voice Over

Promos are a great way to launch a product or service, kick-start a campaign, make a big announcement or to just let people know about your company.

Having a great video is important, but having an engaging voice helps hammer home your message and grab the viewer’s attention.

E-Learning Voice Over

GoLocalise is able to provide your company with e-learning translation, localisation and voice over services, leaving you with a ready-to-host product.

You’ll benefit from an expert pool of highly-skilled linguists who have extensive experience in e-learning and a sound understanding of the particular industry sector in which you are dealing.

Our service includes the management of the entire process and delivery of content adapted to foreign markets.

The steps and services involved in any end-to-end e-learning project are: the translation of the course and on-screen text; the localisation of the course graphics; the voice over recording of the course with your preferred voice over talents; and quality control during which the localised course files are reviewed against the original files.

E-learning voice overs can be used for many applications such as training courses, step-by-step instructional and safety videos, technical information, online tutorials and many other informational and educational programmes. Whatever the application, our professional voice over talents can provide you with a clear, concise and accurate narration.

If you need a voice over to narrate your e-learning course or educational product you’ll need someone with the experience, clear diction and stamina to record large volumes of text.

Educational Voice Over

Do you remember when you first started learning a foreign language?

The educational field has seen a transformation in recent years with the introduction of new technologies like smart boards and tablet apps. This transformation is especially evident in the voice over industry.

But we can all agree that the basics are still the same – a clear voice with good diction, a neutral accent, and a slow pace for better comprehension.

And while getting the right voice over talent may seem easy… we can assure you it is not. Many factors must be considered, for example, complicated words, "tongue twister" phrases, over-articulation, contractions, and lazy mouth to name a few.

Don't leave it to chance, make sure your content is clearly understood by your audience and choose GoLocalise for your next educational voice over project. We have thousands of passionate and professional voice over artists ready to work with you in English or any foreign language.

How many times have you heard a horrible voice while on hold on the phone and felt like you just wanted to hang up?

Did you know that 90% of callers placed on hold, listening to silence, hang up within 40 seconds, and 30% of them never call back?

On-hold messaging or messages on hold is a service used by businesses and organisations of all sizes to deliver targeted information to their callers while they wait on hold or while they are being transferred.

Improve your customer experience, and choose a confident voice with tons of charm, warmth and enthusiasm to properly represent your company. We work with a great variety of companies, translating, adapting, casting the voice over talents and recording the telephone prompts.

Telephone prompts are recorded, cleaned, edited, split and labelled and delivered in the format of your choice, so you do not need to worry about anything!

Character & Video Game Voice Over

Video games are not just for entertainment, but they are also used to educate users of all ages while forming strong virtual communities.

We know that the game doesn’t only have to look good and play smoothly, but also has to sound and read just right. That’s why we at GoLocalise provide all our clients with carefully selected linguists, who are not only specialists in the video game field but are also gamers themselves.

We look after every single detail when localising games into foreign languages and always use the latest glossaries for all the current video game platforms, Wii, PlayStation, Xbox, etc. so that terminology and platform word choices are always spot-on.

You’ll benefit from working with a company that provides the whole package under one roof: translation, quality control, testing and voice over services for all types of video games. The voice over process is overseen by language directors, i.e., native speakers who ensure the correct delivery, pronunciation and intonation of the script.

By using the right voices you can keep frustrated players motivated!

A BRIEF HISTORY OF Flemish

Flemish or Belgian Dutch, or Vlaams) is the Dutch language as spoken in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium, be it standard (as used in schools, government and the media)[4] or informal (as used in daily speech, “tussentaal (nl)” [ˈtʏsə(n)ˌtaːl]). There are four principal Dutch dialects in Flanders: Brabantian, East Flemish, West Flemish and Limburgish. The latter two are sometimes considered separate languages.

Linguistically, ‘Flemish’ is sometimes used as a term for the language of the former County of Flanders, especially West Flemish. However, as a result of political emancipation of the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, the combined culture of that region (which consists of West Flanders, East Flanders, Flemish Brabant, Antwerp, Limburg) and of Brussels has come to be known as ‘Flemish’ and so sometimes are the four dialects or the common intermediate language. Despite the name, Brabantian and in particular its local dialects of Antwerp and Mechelen is the dominant contributor to the Flemish tussentaal. Using it for the official language in Flanders is not entirely correct: the official language in Flanders is standard Dutch.

Flemish includes more French loanwords in its everyday vocabulary than does Netherlands Dutch, but there are exceptions: for example, the former Belgian gendarmerie was known as the Rijkswacht (“Guard of the Realm”) in Belgium while the equivalent body in the Netherlands is the Koninklijke Marechaussee (“Royal Military Constabulary”).

The traditionally most spoken Dutch dialect in Belgium, Brabantian, has had a large influence on the vocabulary used in Belgium. Examples include beenhouwer (Brabantian) and slager (Hollandic), both meaning butcher (slager is however used in Belgium to mean the kind of butcher who sells salami, sausages, etc.: cf. the difference between beenhouwerij (butcher’s shop) and slagerij (delicatessen)); also schoon (Brabantian) vs. mooi (Hollandic) “beautiful”: in standard Dutch, schoon means clean, whereas in Belgium it is often used for pretty or beautiful. Another notable difference is ge / gij (“you” in Brabantian and “thou / thee” in the Dutch Bible, originally translated by Belgian Protestants fleeing the Inquisition under Philip II of Spain) vs. je / jij (“you” singular in Hollandic), jullie (“you” plural in Hollandic). The changes (isoglosses) from northern to southern Dutch dialects are somewhat gradual, both vocabulary-wise and phonetically, and the boundaries within coincide with territorial borders. There is a distinct boundary located in the river area of the Netherlands, a historical border of the Roman empire, south of which “Brabants” is spoken, a Dutch dialect with some of the phonological traits commonly associated with Belgium. A second distinct border area is located around the border with the Belgian territories, where the transition is mostly lexical, but also with an intensification of the phonological diversion from northern Dutch. An exception to the border with the Belgian territories for this border is Zeelandic Flanders (“Zeeuws-Vlaanderen”), a part of the Netherlands where Flemish is spoken.

The differences between Dutch in the Netherlands and Flemish are significant enough for Flemish and Dutch television shows with rather informal speech occasionally to become subtitled for the other country in the standard language.

In 2009, one of the main publishers of Dutch dictionaries, Prisma, published the first Dutch dictionary that distinguished between the two natiolectic varieties “Nederlands Nederlands” (or “Netherlandish Dutch”) and “Belgisch Nederlands” (“Belgian Dutch”), treating both variations as equally correct. The selection of the “Flemish Dutch” words was based on the Referentiebestand Belgisch Nederlands (RBBN): an electronic database built under the supervision of Prof. Dr. W. Martin (Free University in Amsterdam, Netherlands) and Prof. Dr. W. Smedts (Catholic University in Leuven, Belgium).

Professor Willy Martin, one of the Flemish editors, claimed that the latter expressions are “just as correct” as the former. This formed a break with the previous lexicologists’ custom of indicating Dutch words that are mostly only used in Flanders, while not doing the same for Dutch words mostly only used in the Netherlands, which could give the impression that only usage in the Netherlands defines the standard language.

In the Dutch language, around 3,500 words exist which are considered “Flemish Dutch”, and 4,500 words which are considered “Netherlands Dutch”.

In November 2012 the Belgian radio channel Radio 1 wrote a text with many Flemish words and asked several Dutch speaking people to “translate” it into general Dutch. Almost no inhabitant of The Netherlands was able to make a correct translation, whereas almost all Flemings succeeded.
