Afrikaans voice-over production made simple

Matinée Multilingual has been setting the quality standards in the UK’s Afrikanns voice-over recording industry for over 30 years, from our recording studios in Reading. We offer a comprehensive range of voice-over recording services, and subtitling services in Afrikaans, and in over 80 other foreign languages.

We have a good selection of the very best Afrikaans voice-over talent available, and you’ll find our voice costs and studio rates to be less than many other agencies offering exactly the same service. And we’ll make sure the chosen Afrikaans voice artist gives you the very best rate for the job, and we’ll negotiate down on repeat fees and broadcast rates on your behalf.

We can record wild, or sync to picture, and deliver the audio back via FTP. When required, we can also re-mix your new Afrikaans voice-over recording with the existing music and effects track, and send you a fully mixed video soundtrack.

    Afrikaans voice-over female – Teeth, gums & bones

    Case Study

    Body-Health were creating an international advertising campaign to promote their ‘Teeth, Gums & Bones’ food supplement. The product helps the body to fight tooth and gum decay and assists the body’s immune system. One of their target markets was South Africa, and we recommended they localise the voice-over into Afrikaans to reach the biggest possible audience.  The client required a friendly, enthusiastic voice and we cast Marinda-B for the role. We recorded her time-sync to the English version of the advert, and provided a cleaned & edited audio file for their production company. Body-Health were delighted with our service and we went on to produce the advert in many other languages.

    A short history of the Afrikaans language

    Afrikaans is a North Germanic language, spoken mainly in South Africa and Namibia, and descended from Dutch.

    During the 18th century, Afrikaans evolved from various dialects spoken by the Dutch settlers of what is now South Africa. Although approximately 90-95% of the vocabulary is of Dutch origin, words were also adopted from Malay, Portuguese, and various Bantu and Khoisan languages.

    In the early 20th century, Afrikaans was recognised legally as a distinct language – not just a Dutch dialect – and it went on to replace Standard Dutch as an official language of South Africa when it became a republic in 1961.

    Today, although Afrikaans is spoken as a first language by only around 13.5% of the population of South Africa, most South Africans understand it as a second (or third) language.

    In Namibia it is spoken widely as a second language, and by around 11% of the population as a native language. Here it also plays an important role as a lingua franca (or common language).

    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.

    The 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.
