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.

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.

On-Hold Messages (IVR) Voice Over

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 Yoruba

Yoruba is a language spoken in West Africa mainly in Nigeria. The number of speakers of Yoruba is approaching 30 million. It is a pluricentric language spoken principally in Nigeria and Benin, with communities in other parts of Africa, Europe, and the Americas. A variety of the language, Lucumi, is the liturgical language of the Santería religion of theCaribbean. Yoruba is most closely related to the Itsekiri language (spoken in the Niger Delta) and to Igala (spoken in central Nigeria).

Yoruba is classified within the Edekiri languages, which together with Itsekiri and the isolate Igala form the Yoruboid group of languages within the Volta-Niger branch of the Niger-Congo family. The linguistic unity of the Niger-Congo family dates to deep prehistory, estimates ranging around 15 kya (the end of the Upper Paleolithic). In present day Nigeria, it is estimated that there are over 40 million Yoruba primary and secondary language speakers and several other millions of speakers outside Nigeria making it the most widely spoken African language outside Africa.

Literary Yoruba, also known as Standard Yoruba, Yoruba koiné, and common Yoruba, is a separate member of the dialect cluster. It is the written form of the language, the standard variety learned at school and that spoken by newsreaders on the radio. Standard Yoruba has its origin in the 1850s, when Samuel A. Crowther, the first African Bishop, published a Yoruba grammar and started his translation of the Bible. Though for a large part based on the Ọyọ and Ibadan dialects, Standard Yoruba incorporates several features from other dialects. It also has some features peculiar to itself, for example the simplified vowel harmony system, as well as foreign structures, such as calques from English which originated in early translations of religious works.

Because the use of Standard Yoruba did not result from some deliberate linguistic policy, much controversy exists as to what constitutes ‘genuine Yoruba’, with some writers holding the opinion that the Ọyọ dialect is the most “pure” form, and others stating that there is no such thing as genuine Yoruba at all. Standard Yoruba, the variety learnt at school and used in the media, has nonetheless been a powerful consolidating factor in the emergence of a common Yoruba identity.
