British voice-over in African accent - 'Fake Antimalarials'
The animation was created by Manta Ray Media, and we worked closely with them to cast an authoritative female African voice artist. We then recorded the chosen voice artist, matching the timing to the guide track on the animation. Then cleaned and edited the audio as a .wav file, ready for integration to the video.
ACT Consortium were delighted with the voice-over and also asked us to produce African French and African Portuguese versions as well.

Origins of the African languages and accent
- Afroasiatic – These languages are spoken across North Africa and the Horn of Africa.
- Nilo-Saharan – Includes Tanzania, Nigeria and the Congo.
- Niger-Congo – Includes Bantu languages such as Shona and Zulu
- Khoisan – Can be found in Botswana and Namibia.
Despite the fact that the continent of Africa now has its independence, English has remained an important language and is still used for official purposes in many African countries. There are around 20 African territories using English as a first language.
African people who speak English have an accent that is influenced by their mother tongue. Pronunciation in English is different between West and East Africa because of the way they pronounce certain letters. Some African regions still hold the English language in high regard, even though they were never colonised by the British. Ethiopia for example has English language newspapers and Western TV shows and radio programmes. You can hear English spoken with an African accent if you watch this episode of the First Ladies No1 Detective Agency on You tube. You can hear the African accent quite distinctly.

Fantastic to work with
The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.
Jade BurnellThe Big Word
Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
