Turkish voice-over – International Cotton Association
The International Cotton Association was started in 1841 in Liverpool, by a group of cotton brokers who applied trading rules to regulate the sale and purchase of cotton around the world. The association still protects the ICR rules worldwide today.
They created an animated explainer video about their brand history, and wanted to localise it into a number of languages, including Turkish. For this version, they required an experienced, mature voice – available at short notice and we recommended Erdinc – a native Turkish male voice over artist. He was selected due to his availability and his authoritative, precise and clear voice.After we recorded and edited the Turkish voice over, we mixed it with the soundtrack and integrated it back to the video.

A short history of the Turkish language
The Turkic languages are distributed over a huge geographical area that spreads from eastern Europe to central and north Asia. They include Azerbaijani, Kasakh and Uzbek. Turkish is sometimes called Istanbul Turkish or Anatolian Turkish, to distinguish it as the language spoken in Turkey.
The development of the Turkish language can be grouped into three periods:
- Old Turkish – 7th to 13th century – the first known written records of Turkish date back around 1,300 years.
- Mid Turkish – 13th to 20th century – during this period Turkish (as we know it today) was influenced by the official language of the Ottoman Empire – Ottoman Turkish, a mixture of Turkish, Persian and Arabic.
- New Turkish – 20th century onwards – in 1928, as part of Atatürk’s Reforms, the Ottoman script was replaced with a Latin alphabet. At the same time, the establishment of the Turkish Language Association saw the removal of Persian and Arabic loanwords.
Which countries have Turkish as a national language?
Turkish is an official language in Turkey, Cyprus and Kosovo. It is recognised as a minority language in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Romania and Iraq.
How many people speak Turkish as their first language?
It is estimated that approximately 63 million people speak Turkish as their first language, mainly in Turkey but also in Germany, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Northern Cyprus, Greece, Kosovo, Albania, Iraq, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan.
Turkish is the most widely spoken of all the Turkic languages.
Did you know…
- Turkish shares a high degree of mutual intelligibility with other Oghuz languages, such as Azerbaijani, Turkmen and Gagauz. Characteristics of Turkish, such as vowel harmony and lack of grammatical gender, are universal within the Turkic family.
- Ottoman Turkish, the literary and official language of the Ottoman Empire (1299 – 1922), was largely unintelligible to the ‘rough Turkish’ spoken by the working classes. But it was the everyday language that became the basis for modern Turkish.
- Turkish dialects can be divided into five main groups – South-western, Central Anatolia, Eastern, Rumelian and Kastamonu. Modern standard Turkish is based on the Istanbul dialect of Anatolian.
- English words that are of Turkish origin include bulgur, Cossack, divan, kiosk, kayak, kebab, shaman and yogurt.
The Turkish economy
Turkey’s emerging free-market economy is the 17th largest in the world in terms of nominal GDP, and the 15th largest by PPP.
Turkey is defined as a newly industrialised country, although agriculture still accounts for around 25% of employment. Key industries include agricultural products, textiles, vehicles and construction materials.
Turkey was a founding member of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, and is one of the G-20 major economies.

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.
