Indonesian Voiceover for Medical Aid Films
Medical Aid Films needed two female Indonesian voice actors to dub a series of four films which provide valuable advice to pregnant African woman.First we transcribed and translated the audio, and prepared the scripts for time-sync recording. Luckily we didn’t have to adapt the scripts for lip-sync as Medical Aid Films were happy with a phrase-sync style voice recording. We cast native Indonesian voice actors and they did an excellent job of matching the original audio’s tone. Finally we mixed the Indonesian audio with the soundtrack and encoded four QuickTime MOV masters with the translated Indonesian audio dub.

A short history of the Indonesian language
Malay is spoken natively on both sides of the Strait of Malacca, which separates Sumatra from the Malay Peninsula. From the 5th century onwards the Strait of Malacca became a busy trade route, and the language spread throughout Indonesia, eventually becoming a lingua franca.
Over the years Malay came under the influence of other languages, including Sanskrit, Arabic, Dutch and English (as well as hundred of local languages, such as Javanese). But even when Indonesia came under Dutch control in the 17th century, Malay was so commonly used that it became the primary means of communication between the government and the people.
When Indonesia became an independent republic in 1945-49, a standardised version of Malay – coined Bahasa Indonesia (literally, “the language of Indonesia”) – was designated as the country’s official national language.
Which countries have Indonesian as a national language?
Indonesian is the official language of Indonesia. Indonesia consists of almost 18,000 islands, and has over 700 different native languages and dialects. Most Indonesians speak both their regional language and Bahasa Indonesia.
How many people speak Indonesian as their first language?
It is estimated that approximately 25 million people speak Indonesian as their first language, with a further 150 million people speaking it as their second language.
Did you know…
- Indonesian is largely mutually intelligible with the official Malaysian form of Malay. There are differences in pronunciation and vocabulary, however, mainly due to Dutch and Javanese influences on the language.
- Indonesian is non-tonal and non-hierarchical – the same vocabulary is used no matter who is being addressed. In this way it is very different from Javanese, which has a hierarchical structure.
- There are several Indonesian words that have been incorporated into the English vocabulary, including orangutan, agar, kapok, batik, sarong, gong and amok.
The Indonesian economy
Indonesia’s emerging market economy is the largest in Southeast Asia. Indonesia is classified as a newly industrialised country, and is a member of the G20 major economies.

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.
