Inspired by the story of Almaz Mengesha, a double-leg amputee triathlete competing to bring awareness to the DinNødhjælp cause, ICHI collaborated to create a powerful campaign entitled “Follow your heart”.
With ICHI having created powerful videos detailing Almaz’s story and inspiration in Danish, Voicearchive was asked to help build out an emotionally rich voice-over experience for the video, dubbed into 5 additional languages.
After watching the videos, it was obvious the most important aspect was the voice of Almaz Mengesha. Her authenticity was inspiring and effectively selecting a skilled voice-over talent which embodied that was critical to the project.
Following successful voice selections, we created timecodes for the translation to ensure that despite word length and pronunciation variation, a seamless and professional voice-over was created for each of the 5 additional languages.
“We teamed up with Voicearchive for a project that required us to translate and narrate a film into 5 different languages. The challenge was to get the speech in multiple languages without losing the length on the sentences. Their voiceover agency offered us a wide range of professional narration voices and the general skill level was really high.”
