We provide a complete start-to-finish multilingual voice-over service including everything from the initial voice-over translation through to the production of the final video ready to publish.
Our professionals use their own recording facilities and we screen out any lip smacking or pauses here at Adelphi before sending the mastered files to the client. Our team of highly experienced producers, studio engineers and mixing engineers record the voice-overs and synchronise them to the videos. We produce your video in the format of your choice, complete and ready to publish through any distribution channel.
Over 1,400 professional voice-over artists
Our database of voice talents has hundreds of possibilities for your project. Our clients’ budgets and needs vary and we are set up to meet them, treating each job as unique. We will strive to accommodate whatever level of voice artist you require. You can download voice demos of our artists here or if you are looking for something more specific, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
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 audio books and narrations, regular paced e-learning, or fast for commercials.

We can offer over 270 voice artists creating English voice-overs in whichever accent you desire. However big your project is, we can provide you with the perfect accented English voice artist or foreign language voice-over.
We have audio samples of our talents available for each language, so choose your voice now and request a quote today. Please be aware that our prices are dependent on the level of experience of your chosen voice-over artist. If we do not have a suitable voice on our books we will search for and record new voices for you to choose from. We are happy to discuss your voice-over needs with you and can advise you on the right voice talent for the region that you are targeting.
We also have an ever-widening range of English speaking voice artists performing anything from African-accented English to Welsh-accented English voice-overs.
Voice-over translation and transcription services
Voice-over translations are a more specialist area when compared to standard translations. Voice-over translations must be restricted to fit the same time-slot as the original otherwise the voice-artist may have to speak faster to make it fit. If the voice-over is going to be used over a video of a different language, then the voice-over translation may include time-codes to help the voice-artist and engineer sync up the voice to the video.
The style of translation is important for voice-overs 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).
Our transcription services provide time-coded scripts ready for translation. The length of many languages will expand when compared to original English and care must be taken in the translation to keep the true meaning of the English, while staying within the time frame allowed.
Professional audio editing
Adelphi offers professionally edited audio as 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.
