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

Flemish voice-over for BAC
This corporate video required full localisation into seven languages including all the graphics and audio. Flemish (Belgian Dutch) was an important market, and they wanted a mature male Flemish voice artist to convey quality and professionalism.
We cast Lode for the role, and before we could record we had to create a time-coded script for the translation agency. We also had to request the sound-track as a separate audio file, so that we could mix and master Lode’s voice-over in post production.
After the recording was complete we integrated this into the video source files and translated all the on-screen text & captions in After Effects. The final video was delivered in both MP4 and WMV formats. The client was delighted with the results and we’ve produced many more projects for them.

A short history of the Flemish language
Modern Dutch is derived from Old Dutch, a West Germanic language spoken (in various dialects) from around the 6th to the 12th centuries throughout the Low Countries. In the early 16th century the Low Countries were governed by the Hapsburg Empire, but by the second half of the century the Netherlands had gained independence. This separation heightened the differences in Dutch dialects that already existed throughout the region.
Belgium became an independent country in 1830, having inherited a variety of languages used by its foreign occupants, including France and Austria. Dutch – or Flemish – continued to be the dominant language in Flanders, and today there are still many variants including East Flemish, West Flemish, Brabantian and Limburgish.
There is no official Flemish language – only Dutch. Dutch is one of Belgium’s three official languages, along with French and German.
How many people speak Flemish as their first language?
Approximately 59% of Belgians – over six million people – speak Dutch as their first language. There is a significant Dutch-speaking community in northern France, where it is recognised as a minority language.
Did you know…
- One of the most convincing arguments for Flemish being a separate language to Dutch is that Flemish TV programmes are often subtitled for broadcast in the Netherlands, and large budget foreign language films are often released in both Dutch and Flemish.
- There is a strong Flemish legacy in northern France, not just in terms of language and borrowed words – for example this is the only part of the country where beer is the preferred everyday drink rather than wine.
Belgium’s location, in the centre of one of the world’s most highly industrialised regions, is important to its open, private-enterprise-based economy.
It was the first country in continental Europe to undergo an industrial revolution (in the 1800s), and has a highly developed transport infrastructure of ports, canals, railways and roads. Belgium depends heavily on world trade, with exports accounting for around two thirds of GNP. The service sector accounts for around 75% of GDP.
Belgium is a member of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, and also of Benelux (along with the Netherlands and Luxembourg). It was one of the founding members of the European Community.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
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.
Jade BurnellThe 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.
