Arabic voice-over production made simple

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

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

    Arabic video translation for Microsoft Skydrive promo

    Case Study

    Microsoft required audio-visual translations of their Skydrive promo video in 38 languages, including an Arabic version. And because Matinée are both an Arabic voice-over agency and an Arabic captioning company, Microsoft’s translation partner – Lionbridge, selected Matinée to handle all aspects of the video translation work.

    First we undertook a review of the Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro video files, to work out the best approach for the Arabic video translation work. Then we produced an audio transcription, to include both a time-coded voice-over script, and the on-screen captions. Lionbridge produced all the translations and DTP work. We cast and recorded one native Arabic voice-over artist, taking care to match the existing time-constraints as closely as possible.

    Our engineers integrated the Arabic translations, graphics and Arabic voice-over into the supplied source files, adjusting the animations to match the new Arabic voice-over track. The final Arabic video was encoded as an H264 MP4, ready for publishing on Microsoft’s portal.

    A short history of the Arabic language

    Arabic, the largest member of the Semitic branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family, is spoken throughout Northwest Africa and the Middle East. The spoken language consists of many varieties, which have all descended from Classical Arabic dating back to the 6th century.

    Classical Arabic, in which the Qur’an is written, remains the formal version of the Arabic language. It is still taught in schools and used by religious scholars.

    Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) has evolved – as the name would suggest – as a modern, standardised version of the language. It is widely understood across the Arab world, and used to teach Arabic as a foreign language, as well as by the media and politicians. Colloquial (or dialectal) Arabic is the everyday spoken language, which has a great many regional variants. These can be mutually unintelligible enough to be considered separate languages, although this is a very contentious issue (many Arabs profess that they speak a single 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.
