Timing is even more critical when considering multilingual projects. When you translate text from one language to another, the length of the source and translated material is likely to be different. For example, English and Chinese are typically very compact languages, and any text that’s translated from these languages will usually be longer in the translation than the original. This is something essential to keep in mind not only for the translation of the source material but also for the narration by the voice actor and any needed subtitles since arrangements will need to be made for the timestamps to be met.
Quality check your voice-over with a personalized demo
Most E-learning projects will have unique terminology and will surpass the hour, which means that there’s a risk of receiving a 3-hour-recording that doesn’t adhere to the quality standards you wish for – what a complete nightmare. You can save time by requesting a personalized demo of the e-learning module to avoid retakes. Like this, the voice talent can receive the necessary feedback to match the desired reading pace to achieve the learning goals of your audience.
This is something we have learnt at VoiceArchive by working closely with our customers. We offer customized demos for your project free of charge to make sure the recording fits your expectations for your audience.
