Hindi voice-over dubbing service for Schizophrenia Documentary
First, we translated the voice-over scripts into Hindi and adapted them for lip-sync. The Hindi voice artists were recorded lip-sync, and the audio was edited to match to the timings of the 25 minute video as closely as possible. We also produced Assamese voice-overs and created a DVD master with a language selection menu.

A short history of the Hindi language
Modern Standard Hindi is the standardised version of the Hindustani language used in India – Modern Standard Urdu is the standardised version of Hindustani used in Pakistan. Hindi and Urdu were created when India and Pakistan became separate nations, but the spoken versions of the two languages are essentially Hindustani and remain almost indistinguishable.
Hindustani originally derives from Sanskrit, but its main developmental period was during the Mughul Empire (1526-1857), when it came under the influence of the official Persian court language. The prevailing dialect from this time was Khari Boli, used in and around Delhi, the Empire’s capital.
Modern Hindustani (based on Khari Boli) was made an official language of India by the British Raj in 1837, along with English – replacing Persian.
Hindi is by far the most widely spoken of India’s 22 official languages, spoken by 41% of the population.
How many people speak Hindi as their first language?
In India, over 400 million people speak Hindi as their first language, and over 100 million speak it as a second language.
There are large Hindi-speaking communities in many other countries, including South Africa, Nepal, Bangladesh and Uganda.
Did you know…
- The literary versions of Hindi and Urdu are more different than the spoken ones. Hindi uses the Devnagari script derived from Sanskrit and retains many Sanskrit words, while Urdu is written with a Persian script and has adopted much Persian vocabulary.
- Most Indian states use three languages for their official documents – English, Hindi and the primary official language of that state (if it’s not English or Hindi).
- Hindi dialects vary greatly. The most easterly regional language, Maithili, is more similar to Bengali than standard Hindi, while the most westerly, Rajasthani, resembles Gujarati. However, most speakers of these regional languages would refer to them as Hindi dialects rather than separate languages.
- Because Hindi was chosen as the language of education in India, it remains a language of upward social mobility (along with English), and is the preferred method of communication when looking for new jobs, marriages etc.
India’s economy is the tenth largest in the world by nominal GDP and the third largest by PPP. India is the 19th largest exporter and the 10th largest importer in the world.
Due to its large population there is still a lot of poverty in the country, despite its economic success. Although India has a growing high-tech sector, around half of the population is employed in agriculture (plus forestry, logging and fishing).
Around 22% of the population work in industry (which accounts for 26% of the GDP), and 27% in the service sector. Over 20 million people work in textile manufacturing.
India was one of the founding members of the World Trade Organisation’s precursor, and is a member of the G20 and BRICS (the association of five major emerging economies – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

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.
