London Voice Over Agency
The best London voice over agency
for all your Voice Over
As London's leading multilingual Voice Over Agency, we produce top quality audio for anything that requires the recording of voices in English as well as in foreign languages: online courses, documentaries, games, corporate videos, sales videos, TV/radio commercials, sports broadcasts, telephony (IVR/on hold messages, location sound), conferences/shows, PowerPoint presentations, dubbing for films and animation.
As part of the professional recording industry, we are often expected to be located in the Soho area. This is because of its vast history of being the home of all famous recording studios that were commonly used by famous artists and talents. However, GoLocalise has strategically chosen to establish its state-of-the-art studios and offices in Stockwell (Northern and the Victoria lines), just 5 underground stations away from Soho itself, and taking just over ten minutes on the tube. Not being in Soho gives our clients more spacious and modern facilities and some extra commodities (like air-con, super speed Wi-Fi, a modern bar and client areas) that one would expect to pay a lot more for – but since we are not in Soho, you get all that… and more! To sum up, we think you would be very happy with our office and studios and we can’t wait to show you around.
We are not a cookie-cutter company, we are different and you will notice that from the very beginning of your experience with us. We think a little differently, we think all about YOU!
Due to the cosmopolitan and multicultural nature of London, you’ll notice that many citizens speak two or more languages. The abundance of languages has facilitated GoLocalise’s success and has established us as the leading voice over and localisation company in the capital. Having access to near enough all speakers and talents from all corners of the world is one of the amazing benefits that GoLocalise can boast about by being located in the English capital, London.

Corporate & Presentations Voice Over
Are you looking for a voiceover for you 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 at the phone and feel like you just want to hang up?

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!
With a long recorded history period of over 2000 years, we have lots to talk about but we will keep it brief!
London has seen and lived through the infamous Black Plague, disastrous fires including the Great Fire of London, civil wars, aerial bombings, terrorist attacks and widespread rioting and has come back stronger!
Despite these catastrophic events that have been part of London’s history, the city has survived to become the capital of England and the UK’s primary financial district.
Most importantly, London more than justifies it’s reputation as a leading centre of creative excellence, not only within the UK but on the global stage. The world’s best musicians, producers, directors, illustrators, painters, sound engineers and voice over actors all come together to study and work. GoLocalise is perfectly positioned at the beating heart of this creativity.
The terrific population growth of the late Victorian period continued into the 20th century. In 1904 the first motor bus service in London began, followed by the first underground electric train in 1906, but perhaps more notable was the spate of new luxury hotels, department stores, and theatres which sprang up in the Edwardian years, particularly in the West End. The Ritz opened in 1906, Harrod's new Knightsbridge store in 1905, and Selfridges in 1907.
New entertainment venues sprouted like mushrooms; with the London Palladium the largest of some 60 major halls for music-hall and variety shows.
Several major building projects marked Edward VII's reign. The long, broad sweep of the Mall was designed by Aston Webb. Webb was also responsible for Admiralty Arch, the Queen Victoria memorial, and the east front of Buckingham Palace.
Although the hardship of London during the Second World War is well known, it is easy to forget that WWI brought hardship as well to the city. In the Fall of 1915 the first Zeppelin bombs fell in London near the Guildhall, killing 39 people. In all, 650 fatalities resulted from bombings during the "War to End All Wars".
Population surged after the war, to about 7.5 million in 1921. The London County Council began building new housing estates, which pushed further and further out into the countryside. Unemployment was high, and labour unrest erupted in the 1926 General Strike. So many workers joined the strike that the army was called in to keep the Underground and buses running, and to maintain order.
In the 1930's large numbers of Jews emigrated to London, fleeing persecution in Europe, and most of them settled in the East End. The year 1938 saw movement out of the city; the threat from Germany was great enough that large numbers of children were moved out of London to the surrounding countryside.
The outbreak of WWII precipitated the defining moment of the century for Londoners - the Blitz. During the dark days of 1940 over a third of the City was destroyed by German bombs, and the London Docks largely demolished.
Some 17 of Christopher Wren's London churches were badly damaged. The area worst hit was the City itself, but strangely, St. Paul's Cathedral suffered only minor damage.
Some 16 acres around the area that now houses the Barbican development and the Museum of London were totally flattened, and numerous historic buildings were destroyed. The death toll was heavy; 32,000 dead and over 50,000 badly injured.
In the post-war period heavy immigration from countries of the old British Empire changed the character of the city. Notting Hill acquired a large Caribbean population, Honk Kong immigrants settled in Soho, Sikhs in Southall, and Cypriots in Finsbury.
The Festival of Britain took place in 1951 on the centenary of the Great Exhibition of 1851. Whereas that first exhibition had left the legacy of the extraordinary Crystal Palace, the Festival left behind it the universally reviled concrete mass of the South Bank Arts complex.
Heathrow airport opened to commercial flights in 1946, and the first double-decker red buses (dubbed the Routemaster) appeared on London roads in 1956.
The London Docks declined after the war, and the formerly bustling area around the Isle of Dogs fell into disuse until rescued by modern development in the last decade.
Between 1972-82 the Thames Barrier was built to control flooding along the river. This amazing engineering feat consists of 10 moveable underwater gates supported by 7 shining steel half-domes strung across the river.
The last great building project of the century was the controversial Millennium Dome, an exhibition centre beside the Thames in North Greenwich. The Dome, which opened on January 1, 2000, is a massive complex, built at a cost of over 750 million GBP. It houses, among other things, sponsored exhibits on the human experience of life, including Faith, Science, and biology.
