Swedish voice-over service for SSP Connections promo 

SSP connections required a Swedish video translation company to help localise their promotional video.

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 voice-over agency

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

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’). Read more
