Japanese voice over recording services for your project
Japanese is the official language of Japan, one of the 10 most spoken languages in the world and the mother tongue of about 125 million people. It is spoken almost exclusively in Japan, but also as a second language in the United States of America, Brazil, South Korea or China.
The Japanese language belongs to the Japonic (or Japanese-Ryukyuan) language family, which has developed largely independently. Nevertheless, there are similarities to the Korean language: Both languages are agglutinating languages in which sentence structure and grammar often coincide completely; however, there are no similarities in vocabulary.
Japanese knows many dialects, some of which are very different. The modern Japanese language has developed in the greater Tokyo area and has spread throughout the country through the educational system, mass media and economy.
The Japanese language has a melodic accent, where the emphasis is not on a higher volume or intensity (as in European languages), but on a change in tone pitch. However, Japanese is not a tone language (such as Chinese, Thai or Vietnamese) because words do not have a fixed tone.
A special characteristic of Japanese is the complex writing system, which is composed of Chinese characters and the scripts Hiragana and Katakana. Grammatically, Japanese follows the SOV schema (subject-object-verb) in the sentence structure, which makes it difficult to synchronize English, German or French movies into Japanese.
We have already implemented a considerable number of projects in Japanese, including a regular series of marketing and product movies for the software developer Adobe; voice prompts for the defibrillator manufacturer Zoll Medical; numerous e-learnings for the automobile manufacturer BMW and the aerospace group Honeywell; the recordings of the telephone hotline for Emirates airline, as well as and the complete production of explanatory videos for the pharmaceutical company ICON.
Voice over recordings in Japanese are carried out in professional recording studios located in Japan. We work with native speakers who have a perfect command of the Japanese language and are trained professional voice talents.
