Voice-over translations use translation techniques, such as voice replacement, off-screen voice-overs, actor substitutions and lip-synching. Depending on your business objectives, the tone and content of the video that requires a voice-over translation can be calculated if you work with professional translation services that can help you decide which technique should be used. There are several possibilities when it comes to translations such as transcriptions and sub-titling the benefit of using a voice over translation is clear.

Voice-overs are better than subtitles

A corporate video voice-over translation is far better than subtitling because with subtitling the viewer needs to concentrate on following the words that appear on the screen. At times the viewer may miss some of the message shown on the video because it is not easy to watch both the subtitles and video at the same time. When new information is encountered it could be hard to understand the new information when subtitles and video have to be followed at the same time. However, when using voice over translations it is easier for the viewer to understand the main point the video is conveying.


Voice-over translations make sure that translated material is appropriately aligned with the initial video content. When the voice-over is performed in a studio, the translator and its team will have access to the right sound equipment. After the voice over has been finished the post-production activities include cleaning up audio files and adjusting the softest and loudest sounds so that the quality of the sound of the finished voice-over is perfect.
