If your video contains regular on-screen text or you simply want to offer your customers a more comfortable viewing experience, you should consider voice over.
Planet Languages has built an extensive pool of voice talent in 80 different languages. We will work with you to cast the most suitable foreign language voices guided by the style, level of formality, and the type of voice you have selected in your video.
Trust us to take the complexity out of localizing your video content.
A timed voiceover is recorded to synchronise with video playback. Also known as recording “to picture”, this method ensures that what is being said is timed to match what appears on screen. Off-screen narration is the most cost-effective option if your video has no on-screen contributors. The foreign-language voiceover simply replaces any existing voiceover.
If your video features on-screen contributors and you wish to replace the speakers’ voices with foreign-language voiceover, there are two dubbing methods to choose from: phrase-syncing and lip-syncing. Lip-syncing involves matching the on-screen contributors’ mouth movements as closely as possible. Phrase-syncing matches the start and end of the contributor’s speech, though it is not matched to lip movements. Both types of dubbing are commonly seen in feature films, animations and video games.
