We have a good selection of the very best Bengali 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 Bengali 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.
Our Bengali voice artists are talented and experienced in a whole range of different voiceover projects, from ads, to corporate narration, to character voices. Whatever the type of voice you need, we’ll be sure to help you find it from our selection of Bengali voice talent.
We can record wild, or sync to picture, and deliver the audio back via FTP. When required, we can also re-mix your new
voice-over recording with the existing music and effects track, and send you a fully mixed video soundtrack.

A short history of the Bengali language
The language is spoken throughout the region of eastern South Asia known as Bengal, which is made up of Bangladesh, the Indian state of West Bengal, and parts of the Indian states of Tripura and Assam.
There are two forms of Bengali – the colloquial Chaltibhasa and the more formal Sadhubhasa. Sadhubhasa, influenced by the rich tradition of early Bengali poetry, became standardised in the 19th century as the literary form of Bengali.
There are four main dialects of the language. These are Radha (West Bengal), Pundra or Varendra (northern parts of West Bengal and Bangladesh), Kamrupa (northeastern Bangladesh) and Bangla (the rest of Bangladesh).
Bengali is the national language of Bangladesh. It is one of 23 official languages recognised by the Republic of India, and the official language of the Indian states of West Bengal and Tripura. It is the co-official language of the Indian state of Assam, and the second official language of the Indian state of Jharkhand. It is also recognised as a secondary language in the city of Karachi in Pakistan.
How many people speak Bengali as their first language?
It is estimated that there are around 230 million native Bengali speakers in the world, the majority of whom live in Bangladesh. Approximately 98% of Bangladeshis speak Bengali as their first language.
It is the second most spoken language in India (after Hindi), and the sixth most spoken language in the world.
As well as being spoken throughout the region of Bengal, it is also prevalent on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. There are large populations of Bengali speakers in the Middle East, United States, Japan, Australia, Canada, Pakistan and the UK.
Did you know…
- The language is symbolic of Bengali nationalism. On 21 February 1952 several people were killed in former East Bengal (now Bangladesh), protesting for its use as a state language. The date is now remembered annually in Bangladesh as Language Movement Day.
- Bangladesh means ‘Bengali homeland’ – coined by the people of eastern Bengal when they won sovereign independence for their nation in 1971. Their native ethnic term for themselves is Bangli – Bengali is an anglicisation.
- There is a long literary tradition associated with Bengali – a source of much national pride. The first Asian to receive the Nobel Prize for literature was the Bengali writer Rabindranath Tagore, in 1913.
Bangladesh has a developing market-based economy, which held fast through the global financial crisis and continues to grow despite political instability and weak infrastructure.
Over half of the country’s GDP is generated by the service sector, and nearly half of Bangladeshis work in agriculture. Unemployment is low, at 5%, but it is estimated that as many as 40% are under-employed (and underpaid).
Bangladesh is one of the Next Eleven (N-11) economies identified by Goldman Sachs as having good investment opportunities, with a large consumer market, single-digit inflation rate and growing middle class.

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.
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.
