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

Kurdish voice over recordings for Anchor
The dairy company came to us looking for three Kurdish voice artists to record a TV commercial for Anchor Full Cream Milk Powder to be broadcast in Iraq for three months. We put forward a selection of Kurdish voice talents and Mansour, Dilba and Aashti were selected as the male, female and child voice actors in the commercial.
The voice over was recorded Lip-sync to the pictures. This style of dubbing replaces the original actor’s voice and matches up their lip movements for the new voice over. Our engineer, cleaned, edited and delivered the audio as a .WAV file.

A short history of the Kurdish language
Written Kurdish began to appear in the 7th century, when the Kurds converted to Islam. The first well-known Kurdish poet was Ell Herirl (1425 – 1495), and Kurdish literature began to become popular in the 16th century.
There is no unified version of Kurdish, but three standardised versions – Northern, Central and Southern. Northern Kurdish, or Kurmanji, is spoken in Turkey, Syria and the northern parts of Kurdish-speaking areas of Iran and Iraq. Around three quarters of Kurds speak this version. Central Kurdish, or Sorani, is spoken in northeast Iraq and west Iran. Southern Kurdish, or Kermanshahi, is spoken in the Kermanshah province of Iraq.
Sorani, or Central Kurdish, is an official language of Iraq. Kurmanji, or Northern Kurdish, is recognised as a minority language in Armenia.
How many people speak Kurdish as their first language?
It is estimated that around 26 million people speak Kurdish as their first language. As well as the Kurdish populations in Turkey, Syria, Iran, Iraq and Armenia, there are significant Kurdish communities in Georgia, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan.
Did you know…
- In Turkey, Syria and Armenia, Kurdish is written using the Latin alphabet. In Iraq and Iran it is written using the Cyrillic alphabet.
- The official status of Kurdish varies hugely from country to country. For example, in Iraq it is one of two official languages, but in Syria it is illegal to publish any material in Kurdish. In Iran it is used in some local media, but not in public schools, while in Turkey strict Kurdish broadcasting restrictions have only recently been relaxed.

Fantastic to work with
The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

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.
