Video case study: Norwegian voice-over for Perfect Home

IVR & on-hold messaging

Wunderland were producing a product promo for Perfect Home and required a Norwegian voice-over agency to assist with casting and recording a native Norwegian female voiceover.

We cast the voice of Camilla, recorded time-sync to picture and cleaned, edited and delivered the audio as 1 x wav file.  The client was delighted with the voice-over and went on to create a Swedish version with us as well.

A short history of the Norwegian Voice-over language

Norwegian voice-over agency

Norwegian belongs to the West Scandinavian branch of the North Germanic family of languages. Along with other Scandinavian languages, it is descended from Old Norse, which was spoken by the Germanic people who lived in Scandinavia during the Viking era.

Norwegian derives from the West Norse dialect group, along with Icelandic and Faroese, while Danish and Swedish derive from East Norse. The western branch of Norse dialects started to break away from the eastern branch after the Kingdom of Norway was founded at the beginning of the 11th century.

Today, spoken Norwegian is essentially mutually intelligible with Danish and Swedish. These three languages are categorised as Mainland Scandinavian, while Icelandic and Faroese are classified as Insular Scandinavian.

Norwegian is unusual in having two distinct written forms – Bokmål (literally ‘book language’, also called Dano-Norwegian) and Nynorsk (‘new Norwegian’). Bokmål derives from Danish (which was the standard written language of Norway from the 16th to 19th centuries), while Nynorsk is based on Norwegian dialects. Although Nynorsk was an attempt at re-establishing their own national language, today 83% of Norwegians still use Bokmål. Read more
