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

Romanian Voice-over for Express Asphalt Safety video
Handling Asphalt can be dangerous work, with heavy loads, and large Lorries making deliveries. So they created an eLearning course to educate their employees about the dangers. The 10-minute ‘Stay Safe’ video was part of this course and Matinée Multilingual was tasked with producing both Russian and Romanian foreign language versions.
First we transcribed the English audio to create a time-coded script. Then we organised translations into both languages, ensuring the each version could be read by the voice artist to fit within the existing vision timing. Finally we cast native male voice artists, recorded time-sync to picture and mixed the audio with the sound-track.

A short history of the Romanian language
The Eastern Romance languages descended from Vulgar Latin during the days of the Roman Empire. The name Romania comes from the Latin word ‘Romanus’. Little is known about the development of Proto-Romanian before the 10th century, when the region came under the influence of the Byzantine Empire.
During the Middle Ages, Romanian was influenced by the Slavic languages (taking it in rather a different direction to most other Romance languages), and also by Greek. The oldest example of written Romanian is a letter dating back to 1521. The first Romanian grammar was published in Vienna in 1780. Standard literary Romanian evolved from the Daco-Romanian dialect spoken in southern Romania.
Romanian is spoken in Moldova as well as Romania. In Moldova it is generally called Moldovan, although there is an ongoing debate about whether it is a separate language or not.
Romanian is the official language of Romania, and also of Moldova (where its name is contested). It also has official status in the autonomous Serbian province of Vojvodina, and the autonomous Mount Athos in Greece.
How many people speak Romanian as their first language?
It is estimated that approximately 24 million people speak Romanian as their first language, mainly in Romania and Moldova.
Did you know…
- There are four main Romanian dialects: Daco-Romanian, which is the basis of standard Romanian, spoken in Romania and Moldova; Aromanian (or Macedo-Romanian), spoken in parts of Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Kosovo and Serbia; Megleno-Romanian, spoken in northern Greece (where it is almost extinct); and Istro-Romanian, spoken on the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia (also almost extinct).
- The Romanian alphabet has 31 letters, similar to the English alphabet but with five additional diacritics – ă (like the ‘a’ in ‘musical’), ș (pronounced ‘sh’), ț (pronounced ‘ts’), â, î (pronounced the same, with no English equivalent).
- Romanian has 100 words in common with Albanian, which occur only in these two languages. Linguists believe this indicates that Romanian and Albanian both have roots in the same earlier Balkan language – possibly Dacian.
Romania has a developing market economy, the 17th largest in the European Union based on nominal GDP and the 13th largest based on PPP.
Between the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989 and the global financial crisis of 2008/09, Romania’s economic growth was among the fastest in Europe (more than three times the EU average in 2008). Romania joined the EU in 2007.
Agriculture is important (employing around 30% of the country’s workforce), although under-developed. Romania has the highest proportion of rural population in the EU (45%) and the highest incidence of rural poverty (70%), with one of the largest gaps in living standards between urban and rural areas.

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.

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.
