Dari voice-over for HIV Treatment Programme
They required a Dari voice over agency to provide them with a female voice artist for one of their foreign language versions of the video. The Dari voice actor had to be experienced in reading medical scripts and deliver it in a professional and engaging manner.
Nasrin was the preferred Dari voice artist on this occasion and read all the medical jargon flawlessly as the client decided to call in to direct the recording and assisted with any pronunciation preferences.

A short history of the Dari language
The historical development of Persian is generally grouped into three phases:
- Old Persian – up until 3rd century BC – an ancient form of the language that evolved from Proto-Iranian.
- Middle Persian – from the 3rd to 9th century – influenced by other Central Asian languages such as Sogdian, Chrosmian and Parthian. Middle Persian declined after the Arabic conquest in the 7th century.
- New Persian – from the 9th century onwards – adopting simplified grammar, an Arabic script, Arabic vocabulary (and later English, French and German vocabulary).
Dari is one of two official languages of Afghanistan – the other is Pashto. Other languages spoken in the country include Uzbek and Turkmen, which are spoken by minorities in northern areas. These are Altaic, rather than Indo-Iranian, languages.
How many people speak Dari as their first language?
In Afghanistan it is estimated that Dari is spoken as a first language by approximately half the population – around 15 million – and understood by 90% of the population. It is the country’s lingua franca, and the principal language of communication and education.
Did you know…
- There are two theories about where the word Dari came from. One is that it came from the word ‘Darbar’, which means court – a reference to the fact that Dari was a respected language used at royal courts of kings. The other theory is that it came from the word ‘Dara’, which means valley – a reference to the birthplace of the language in the mountainous land of Khorasan.
- Although both the Indo-Iranian and Altaic languages of Afghanistan use a modified Arabic alphabet, none is actually related to Arabic, which is a member of the Semitic family of languages.
Years of conflict have taken their toll on Afghanistan, and although the economy has grown since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001, around 35% of the population is unemployed and 36% live below the national poverty line.
The country suffers from lack of infrastructure, criminality, weak governance and high dependence on foreign aid.
There is some hope for the future, however; the government claims that the country could be one of the richest mining regions in the world, with up to $3 trillion in proven untapped mineral deposits.

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.
