Tigrinya voice-over production made simple

Matinée Multilingual has been setting the quality standards in the UK’s Tigrinya 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 Tigrinya, and in over 80 other foreign languages.

We have a good selection of the very best Tigrinya 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 Tigrinya 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.

We can record wild, or sync to picture, and deliver the audio back via FTP. When required, we can also re-mix your new Tigrinya voice-over recording with the existing music and effects track, and send you a fully mixed video soundtrack.

    Tigrinyan voice-over for Familjecentrum

    Case Study

    The Family Centre (Familjecentrum) in Sweden, required a Tigrinyan voice-over for their introductory video to help welcome immigrant families and their children. Familjecentrum is government funded, and offers parents and their children a place to talk to other parents and seek advice from councillors. It also gives them opportunities to make friends in the community.

    In the UK it is quite difficult to find Tirginyan actors, so we recorded via ISDN with Mewael – a voice talent based in Africa. We then cleaned & edited the voice-over, and the client laid it back to the video themselves.

    Tigrinya voice-over for HIV Treatment Programme

    Case Study

    Region Östergötland is a Swedish health care company that have made a breakthrough in discoveries related to the HIV disease. They created a video to promote a specialised medicine that means people with HIV can live a full and normal life.

    They wanted to reach out to health care companies outside of Sweden, and decided to localise the video in a variety of languages including Tigrinya. They required a native Tigrinya female voice over artist. Amira was selected due to her warm and welcoming manner.

    Amira recorded the script time-sync to video to match up with the original video at the correct time points. The video was used to create health care partners in Eritrea and improve the lives with those with HIV.

    A short history of the Tigrinya language

    Tigrinya (also spelled Tigrigna, also called Tigray or Tigrai) belongs to the Ethiopic sub-group of the Semitic branch of the Afro-Asiatic family of languages. It is closely related to the ancient language of Ethiopia, Ge’ez (now extinct), and also to Tigre.

    The earliest written example of Tigrinya dates back to the 13th century – a text of local laws found in southern Eritrea. Tigrinya literature was strongly influenced by Ge’ez, especially in relation to Christian/Biblical writing. Ge’ez was used as literary medium for Tigrinya until relatively recently.

    Which countries have Tigrinya as a national language?

    Tigrinya is an official language in Eritrea (along with Arabic and English). It is recognised as a minority language in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.

    How many people speak Tigrinya as their first language?

    It is estimated that approximately 6.7 million people speak Tigrinya as their first language – 4.2 million in Ethiopia (where it is the third most spoken language after Amharic and Oromo) and 2.5 million in Eritrea (where it is the most widely spoken language).

    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.

    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.
