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

Czech translation & voice-over - European Space Agency
In each language version, we first organised the translation of the English script and on-screen captions. Then we recorded the foreign language voice-over of the chosen voice-artist. It was important to match the English voice-over for pace and intonation, and we also had to fit the foreign voice-over within the timings of the English version.
The client was delighted with the results, and we are proud to have worked on such a fine production.

A short history of the Czech language
The Czech language has its roots in ancient Slavonic, from which it began to separate at the end of the 10th century. It developed during the Middle Ages and spread geographically with the expansion of the Bohemian state (it was known as Bohemian in English until the 19th century).
The literary form of the language became more standardised during the 15th and 16th centuries. This process was influenced by modifications to Czech orthography made by the religious reformer Jan Hus, to accommodate Czech sounds that could not be represented by the Latin alphabet.
Today there are differences between traditional written Czech and common spoken Czech, and several distinct (but mutually intelligible) dialects are spoken within the different regions of the Czech Republic – Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. It is very similar to Slovak – Czechs and Slovaks can understand each other fairly easily.
Czech is the official language of the Czech Republic, where it is spoken by approximately 96% of the population. Other languages spoken in the country include Slovak, German and Polish.
Czech is one of 24 official languages of the European Union.
How many people speak Czech as their first language?
Around 12 million people speak Czech as their first language, the majority of whom live in the Czech Republic. Other countries with significant Czech-speaking communities include Slovakia, Austria, Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Croatia, Romania and the United States.
Did you know…
- There is a particularly large Czech-speaking community in Texas, as a result of thousands of Czech immigrants settling in the state during the 19th century. However, researchers say that the language is dwindling there, and will not survive for much longer.
- The name čeština/Czech comes from that of a Slavic tribe who lived in Central Bohemia. Legend has it that they originally took their name from the Forefather Čech, who brought his tribe to the land.
- Several Czech words do not contain any vowels at all – such as zmrzl (frozen solid), ztvrdl (hardened), scvrkl (shrunk), vlk (wolf) and smrt (death). The Czech language has one consonant widely agreed to be completely unique – the letter ř.
The Czech Republic has one of the most successful economies of the post-Communist democracies of Central and Eastern Europe, particularly since its accession to the European Union in 2004.
The Czech economy relies heavily on industries such as machine-building, the production of iron and steel, electronics, textiles, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and so on.

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.
