Polish voice-over production made simple
Matinée Multilingual has been setting the quality standards in the UK’s Polish voice-over recording industry for over 30 years, from our recording studios in Reading. We offer a comprehensive range of voice-over recording services, and subtitling services in Polish, and in over 80 other foreign languages.
We have a good selection of the very best Polish 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 Polish 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.
Our Polish voice artists are talented and experienced in a whole range of different voiceover projects, from ads, to corporate narration, to character voices. Whatever the type of voice you need, we’ll be sure to help you find it from our selection of Polish voice talent.
We can record wild, or sync to picture, and deliver the audio back via FTP. When required, we can also re-mix your new Polish voice-over recording with the existing music and effects track, and send you a fully mixed video soundtrack.

A short history of the Polish language
Poland’s central position in Europe brought the country into contact with many other languages over the years – especially during the Old Polish period. The first major external influence during this period was Latin, which was introduced to the country in 966 when Poland adopted Christianity. Czech, Hungarian and German also had an impact on the development of the Polish language during the 10th to 16th centuries.
After the Partitions of Poland – a series of three partitions that took place in the second half of the 18th century – Poland didn’t exist as a country until after the First World War. This marked the beginning of the Modern Polish period, with the language becoming an important symbol of national identity.
Polish is the official language of Poland, where it is spoken by almost 97% of the population. It is a minority language in Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
How many people speak Polish as their first language?
It is estimated that 50 million people speak Polish as their first language worldwide. Outside Poland, the largest numbers are in the United States (668,000), the United Kingdom (500,000), Canada (243,000) and Lithuania (200,000).
Did you know…
- It’s estimated that there are around 200,000 words in the Polish language (as a comparison, there are around 170,000 in the English language). While a third of these words are foreign adaptations, a quarter are still directly related to Old Slavonic.
- Polish has been a key language in the political and cultural history of Europe. It was the language of diplomacy in east central Europe from the late 14th century, when Poland acted as mediator between the Baltic and Black Seas. Polish translations of Latin texts were used throughout the region for many years; as a result of this, nearly all the ruling members of the Russian Romanov Dynasty (1613 – 1917) were fluent in Polish.
- After the Latin alphabet was adopted, certain diacritics were gradually added to the characters to represent distinct Polish sounds – including the ogonek on ę and ą; the kropka on ż; the kreska on ć, ń, ó, ś and ź; and the stroke on ł.
Poland has a high income economy – the sixth largest in the European Union, the 20th largest in the world (in terms of GDP), and one of the fastest growing in Europe. It was the only country in the EU to avoid a recession during the 2008-2009 economic downturn. Despite this, GDP per capita is significantly below the EU average, and unemployment is above the EU average. Poland is a founding member of the World Trade Organisation, and joined the European Union in 2004.

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.
Matinée is a company I can trust
I’ve worked with Matinee for well over 20 years, and continue to go back to them because of trust; a trust in their commitment to fulfilling the needs of my project, and a trust in the quality of their work.
I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.
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.
