Swedish voice-over agency
Swedish voice-over production made simple
Matinée Multilingual has been setting the quality standards in the UK’s Swedish 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 Swedish, and in over 80 other foreign languages.
We have a good selection of the very best Swedish 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 Swedish 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 Swedish 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 Swedish 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 Swedish voice-over recording with the existing music and effects track, and send you a fully mixed video soundtrack.

Swedish voice-over service for SSP Connections promo
As a full-service audio-visual translation company, Matinée were chosen because we could offer both Swedish voice-over services and a Swedish translation of the captions. Other voice-over agencies couldn’t offer the video translation element and the client was delighted they could get everything produced with one company. Matinée’s in-house Swedish voice-over agency cast the female voice artist and produced the recordings. The translated voice-over was then integrated into the video source files and the captions were localised. The final Swedish video was encoded as a .mov file.
We also delivered video translation and voice-over services for this project in 12 other languages, including: Cantonese, Mandarin, French, German, Norwegian, Spanish, Dutch, Thai, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian & Russian. These videos are now viewed worldwide in over 55 international markets.

A short history of the Swedish language
Swedish and Danish derive from the East Norse dialect group, while Norwegian, Icelandic and Faroese derive from West Norse. Today, spoken Swedish is essentially mutually intelligible with Norwegian and Danish. These three languages are categorised as Mainland Scandinavian, while Icelandic and Faroese are classified as Insular Scandinavian.
Until the 12th century Swedish and Danish were roughly the same dialect, using the runic alphabet. In Sweden, Old East Norse is called Runic Swedish, while in Denmark it’s called Runic Danish.
Notable events in the development of the Swedish language include the establishment of the printing press in Sweden in 1484, the first print of the Swedish Bible in 1526, and the founding of the Swedish Academy in 1786. The standard language began to emerge from Central Swedish dialects towards the end of the 19th century – this period of development is called nusvenska (‘New Swedish’).
Which countries have Swedish as a national language?
Swedish is the official language of Sweden, and a co-official language of Finland. It is the only official language of Åland, an autonomous region of Finland, as well as three other Finnish municipalities – Korsnäs, Närpes and Larsmo.
How many people speak Swedish as their first language?
It is estimated that over 9 million people speak Swedish as their first language. Most of these live in Sweden.
Did you know…
- There is a high level of standardisation in the Swedish language, with few dialects. However, those dialects that do exist are so distinct and localised that they are almost incomprehensible to standard Swedish speakers.
- Swedish uses the standard 26-letter European alphabet, with three additional vowels – å, ä, and ö. The letters q, w, x and z are predominantly used in loanwords.
- There used to be significant Swedish-speaking communities in Estonia, particularly on the Baltic coast islands of Hiiumaa, Vormsi and Ruhnu. After Estonia became part of the Russian Empire in the 18th century, around 1,000 Swedish-speaking Estonians were banished to Ukraine, where they established a village called Gammelsvenskby (‘Old Swedish Village’).
The Swedish economy
Sweden has a diverse, competitive, export-driven economy, a highly skilled labour force, and a high standard of living with extensive welfare benefits.Major industries include motor vehicles, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, industrial machines, home goods and appliances, forestry, iron and steel.

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.
