Englewood Cliffs, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2019 -- As a top-rated provider of professional voice over services, like voice prompts for phone systems, narration for E-learning and corporate productions, and multilingual localization services, The Great Voice Company understands that there are challenges when translating languages for voice over work. Now, the company renowned for their accuracy in translation and localization is offering advice for avoiding common pitfalls in this process.
Since many languages expand when translated—especially when English is the source—it can lead to issues with timing, causing the native speaking voice over artist to rush their lines or may require a translator to condense or rearrange the source material.
Another common mistake made by translators is not examining the source material closely enough when localizing their voice overs. It's crucial for these translators to refer to the original script, determining the context for certain terms and phrases, as well as allowing them to understand the overall tone of the recording. This will avoid confusion and inaccuracies in the content.
Underestimating the impact of appropriately localizing a voice over can also lead to harming a company's reputation. If voice over content is accidentally translated into a comical—or worse—offensive message, then it can not only make a company look incompetent, but insult the very audience they were trying to entice.
Instead of falling victim to these translation and localization blunders, it's critical for businesses to rely on professionals. The Great Voice Company solely employs certified translators and native voice artists to provide expert voice over services for their clients.
