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

Greek translation & voice-over for The 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 with the chosen voice-artist. It was important to match the English voice-over for pace and intonation, so we recorded the foreign voice-over within the time constraints of the English version.

A short history of the Greek language
Greek is an independent branch of the Indo-European family of languages. It has 34 centuries of documented history – the longest of any of the Indo-European languages. This incredibly long development of the language, leading up to the modern version spoken today, is generally split into six periods:
- Proto-Greek – from the 3rd millennium BC – spoken by early settlers of the Greek peninsula.
- Mycenaean Greek – from the 15th century BC – spoken by the Mycenaean civilisation. Records dating from this time are written on stone tablets using a syllabic script (called Linear B).
- Ancient Greek – from the 9th century BC – used in the Archaic and Classical periods of ancient Greek civilisation, and later throughout the Roman Empire.
- Koine or Hellenistic Greek – from the 3rd century BC – the first common Greek dialect, spread throughout the Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa by the armies of Alexander the Great.
- Medieval or Byzantine Greek – up to the 15th century AD – a continuation of Koine Greek used throughout the Byzantine Empire.
- Modern Greek – up to present day – a continuation of Medieval Greek. As well as Standard Modern Greek, which is based largely on the Peloponnesian dialect, there are several Greek dialects spoken today.
Which countries have Greek as a national language?
Greek is the official language of Greece and Cyprus (nominally along with Turkish). It is a recognised minority language in Albania, Armenia, Romania, Ukraine, Hungary and parts of Italy. It is one of the official languages of the European Union.
How many people speak Greek as their first language?
It is estimated that approximately 13 million people speak Greek, mainly in Greece, Albania and Cyprus. There are significant Greek-speaking communities in Albania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, Romania, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Did you know…
- The Greek alphabet has been used from around 750 BC. It was developed from the Canaanite/Phoenician alphabet and some of the meanings of the letter names derive from Canaanite (eg alpha from aleph, which means ox, and beta from beth, which means house).
- Different versions of the alphabet were used in different cities. These are divided into three groups – green, blue and red. The blue group developed into the modern Greek alphabet, while the red group developed into the Etruscan and then the Latin alphabet.
- Koine Greek is also sometimes called New Testament Greek, as this was the original language in which the New Testament was written.
- It is estimated that around 12% of the English vocabulary (over 50,000 words) is derived from Greek. Greek roots have continued to be used in coining new words, for example photography, biomechanics.
The Greek economy
Greece’s economy is the 42nd largest in the world in terms of GDP, and the 45th largest in terms of purchasing power parity. In 2013 Greece had the 13th largest economy out of 28 in the European Union, and the largest economy in the Balkans – larger than all the other Balkan economies combined.
The service sector accounts for around 80% of the Greek economy, and industry contributes 16%. Major industries include tourism and shipping; Greece is the sixteenth most visited country in the world, and the Greek Merchant Navy is the largest in the world.
Greece was a founding member of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, and is a member of the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organisation. Greece formally joined the European Union in 1981, and adopted the euro in 2001.

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.
