Spotlight: Mandarin voice artists

Professional audio editing

Adelphi offers professionally edited audio as a standard for all of our voice over projects. What exactly does this mean? Go here and we will have a look at what we do with the audio before delivering it to our clients, changing the ‘raw’ unedited audio data into professional, clean-sounding voice-over files. Included in our quality checks are, listening to the audio to check for any errors, that the pronunciation is correct, all segments have been recorded, timings are right and the files are correctly split and named; we take out any overly long pauses and normalise the levels so all the audio is of the same volume.

Voice-over talents

We work specifically with professional talents so that we maintain our level of quality and professionalism. Each of our talents has their own rates that they work with, this being based on the region they are from, the nature of the project and if they are part of a union.

In a one-hour recording session, our talents can record between 1,500 – 3,000 words of voice-over, which is 10 – 20 minutes of audio. This depends on the speed required for the project; e.g. slow for audiobooks and narrations, regular paced e-learning, or fast for commercials.

Voice-over usage fees

This is a complex subject as each of our talents has their own rates for the usage fees. Some talents will charge a fee and some will not. Things to consider with the buyout fees is where the material will be shown such as radio; is that local radio, regional radio or national radio?

The usage fee will also depend on the country the voice artist is based in as there is no international standard rate. We recommend you approach us first and let us know the nature of the project and the budget you have. We will then provide you with the talents that are flexible enough to work within your needs.

English speaking Mandarin voice artists

English voice-overs with Mandarin accent. Our Mandarin voice artists speaking English offer great options for your Audio project. Adelphi provides Mandarin-accented English voice-overs to customers all over the world.

Mandarin voice-over translations

Our experienced translation team will work with you to fully understand your project in order to effectively manage the workflow from concept to completion. Adelphi ensures that all our translators are professional and work only into their mother tongue. If the Mandarin audio is going to be used over a video, then the voice-over translation could include time-codes to help the engineer sync up the audio to the video.

The style of translation is important for voice-over translations and should reflect the genre, e.g. if it is for marketing, public information, drama etc. The audio translator will have a copy of the video as a reference and is instructed to translate using a style to match the source material. All our translators have signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement).

Transcription services

We also offer a transcription service for those customers lacking a transcript of their videos. We provide time-coded scripts of your videos ready to be translated. We will then use those translations for the subtitle text, sending you the files at each stage of the process for you to review and assess.

English to Mandarin (Simplified Chinese) Translation and Typesetting

[soliloquy id=”11182″]

Traditional (Cantonese) and Simplified (Mandarin) Chinese

Both Mandarin and Cantonese refer to spoken languages whereas Traditional and Simplified donates the writing systems. Mandarin is the official language in mainland China and  Cantonese is used in Hong Kong, Macau and the province Guangdong.

Mandarin text contracts around 15% less than the English source so when typesetting Mandarin it could cause problems if this has not been taken into account in the original design.

All our Mandarin typesetting is handled in-house and carried out by our own experienced typesetters. We produce all kinds of Mandarin typesetting including corporate brochures, packaging, business cards, posters and manuals.


Adelphi is a full service translation agency, which as well as producing Mandarin translations also produces Mandarin subtitling and Mandarin voice-overs and has with offices in the UK and USA. When typesetting some languages it is important to know which font works for that particular language in a particular design package. By using Adelphi for your translation and typesetting we will ensure that the correct font is used to avoid any problems at the typesetting stage.

Adelphi has been translating and typesetting Mandarin and other languages for national and international companies including Jaguar, Vidal Sassoon, Cisco, Sony etc, direct or via their advertising and design agencies.
