German voice over for Therakos CELLEX System demonstration

Therakos contacted Matinée for help with translating their CELLEX System demonstration video from English to German.  We were selected because we could offer the complete service including: creating the time-coded voice-over script, translating the script for voice-over use, recording the German voice-over, and video editing services to translate all the captions.

Given the medical context of the demonstration, our German linguistic director reviewed the performance to ensure the German voice artist used the correct articulation and enunciation throughout. Once the recording was completed, we mixed the German voice over with music and integrated into the After Effects project. Then we translated the on-screen text and encoded the final video. We translated the video into 5 languages in including: Japanese, German, French, Italian and Spanish.

A short history of the German language

German voiceover talent agencyGerman, one of the oldest languages in Europe, belongs to the West Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family, along with English and Dutch.

The history of the language begins somewhere between the 3rd and 5th centuries, when there was a consonant shift which separated Old High German (the root of the language today) from the Old Saxon spoken by Germanic tribes.

The Old High German dialects evolved into Middle High German dialects, from which modern standard German is descended. Middle High German was the language used by Martin Luther in his 16th century translation of the Bible. At this time – and for nearly 300 years afterwards – there was no standard German language, with the country divided into several independent states, each with its own dialect.

Today there are still many German dialects, mostly belonging to the High German and Low German groups (which differ mainly in the sound of consonants). High German, spoken throughout the central and southern highlands of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, is the official written language. Low German is spoken in the lowlands of north Germany – there is no written standard of the language. Read more
