Female Korean voice artist for Windows Live Messenger video

Microsoft’s Windows Live Messenger went through a number of changes in the years leading up to its retirement in 2013 to make way for Skype.

Back In 2011 we worked closely with Microsoft’s translation agency to produce a localised explainer video, ready for the launch of Windows Live Messenger 2011. The video was fully localised for 55 markets, and this case-study showcases the Korean version we produced for the South Korean market.

Microsoft wanted a friendly, bright and clear female voice and we cast Jude who is now one of our preferred Korean voice talents. The localised animation does an effective job of communicating the features of Live Messenger 2011 without boring viewers and we went on to produce many more projects for them. 

A short history of the Korean language

Korean voiceover talent agency

Little is known about the early origins of the Korean language, although it is commonly assigned to the Altaic language family of central Asia, which includes Turkish and Mongolian.

Korean shares many linguistic features with Japanese, another language commonly – though by no means definitively – said to be part of the Altaic family. It was also influenced by Chinese (with many Chinese characters incorporated into the written language), although this belongs to a separate language family.

Han’gul, the Korean writing system used today, was devised during the reign of King Sejong (1397-1450). Its purpose was to overcome the restrictions of using Chinese to express the Korean language, by providing the Korean people with their own accessible, phonetic script.

There were, and still are, a number of regional dialects in Korea. After the capital was moved to Kaesong in the 10th century, the Kaesong dialect became the national standard. Although there are minor differences in the dialects spoken in North Korea and South Korea, both countries essentially adhere to the standards set out by the Korean Language Society in 1933. Read more
