American voice-over production made simple

Matinée Multilingual has been setting the quality standards in the UK’s American 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 American, and in over 80 other foreign languages.

We have a good selection of the very best American 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 American 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 American voice-over recording with the existing music and effects track, and send you a fully mixed video soundtrack.

    American voice-over dubbing service for Microfocus

    Case Study

    Microfocus created a series of corporate videos with T-Systems Italia, featuring discussions about IT solutions with experts from their Italian offices. They needed to localise the videos in English for their American audience.

    We recommended that we do the recordings ‘phrase-sync’ which means the American voice is timed to the original Italian audio phrase-by-phrase. This is much less expensive than lip-sync dubbing because the translated script does not have to be adapted to match the lip-movements, and the recording also takes less time. Given their priority was just to interpret the message this was the most cost-effective solution. We cast Greg to do the voice-over, with his professional, corporate style he matches the Italian speakers very well.

    A short history of the American language

    American English is the version of English that is spoken and written in the United States of America. It evolved as a result of the English colonisation of North America that began in the 17th century.

    The main difference between American English and British English is in pronunciation, although there are also variations in grammar and vocabulary.

    American English is standardised across the United States, with a series of distinct dialects that vary across regions of the country. These dialects developed as settlers from different parts of Britain (eg Scotland), as well as from other countries (eg Germany, Ireland, Spain), spread across the country. The language has also been influenced by the Native American population.

    The first major American dictionary was written in 1828. The publication of ‘An American Dictionary of the English Language’ was a big step forward in distinguishing the English language used in the United States from that used in Britain.

    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.
