Clients who we work for and projects that we have carried out successfully
Since 2019 we produce voice over recordings for the Spanish YouTube channel En Pocas Palabras – Kurzgesagt, for our client Epic Mountain.
The design studio In a Nutshell – Kurzgesagt produces animated explanatory videos and focuses on the topics of physics, space exploration, biology, politics, technology, and philosophy. The animated films present the respective topics in an easily understandable and entertaining way.
Besides the main channel Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell, where the videos are published in English, the German versions of the videos are presented on the channel Dinge Erklärt – Kurzgesagt. The Spanish YouTube channel En Pocas Palabras – Kurzgesagt has been in operation since 2019, so some of the videos can now also be seen in Spanish.
When the production for the Spanish recordings was planned, it was important to reach as many Spanish speaking people as possible worldwide. Since most Spanish native speakers live in South and Central America, the choice was made for a Latin American voice talent who is native Mexican. Due to the very neutral pronunciation, voice talents from Mexico are often booked for recordings for the Latin American target market. Their pronunciation is easy to understand for most people in South and Central America and is perceived as pleasant.
Since the length of the English videos is predetermined, the Spanish voice over must be time-synchronous to them. As we also coordinate the translations, we can already take this requirement into account during the pre-production. The text lengths of the finished translations are then checked again and the recording script for the time-synchronous recording is created.
For over 10 years we have been supporting the creative agency nepomedia GmbH in the localization of Adobe marketing videos. In this connection we are responsible for the complete audio production for the various target markets.
The requirements are various, some voice recordings have to be time synchronous to the English source videos, because the recordings of the target language are put over the original recording as “voice-over”. For some videos, the duration can be extended, so the voice recordings can be created individually for each target language. We produce the final mixdown of voice recording, background music and sound effects for each language.
We have already produced the voice over of the marketing videos for the target languages German, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese for China and Mandarin Chinese for Taiwan. The voice recordings are performed by our partner studios with professional voice-over talents in the respective target countries.
Since 2013, we have been supporting the film production company Bayerl & Partner GmbH with voice over recordings for commercials for the Dr. Wolff-Gruppe GmbH. We produce voice over recordings for numerous target markets of the brands Alpecin, Plantur 39, Plantur 29, Linola and Vagisan.
For Epic Mountain we produced the voice over recordings of an educational video on behalf of the United Nations (UN) about pollution of the oceans by plastic waste and microplastics. The target languages have been Arabic, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Russian, Spanish, Swahili and Vietnamese. The length of the original video was given. In addition, the timings of the animations used in the film could not be changed. Since we were also responsible for managing the translation, we were able to take these requirements into account during the pre-production process.
An educational film for the European Antibiotic Awareness Day, produced by the PR and advertising agency mc Group AG for the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), was recorded in 14 target languages.
Since 2011, we have been supporting the pharmaceutical service provider ICON Plc with voice over recordings for telephone-based patient survey systems. To date, we have recorded over 90 different languages for the production of clinical studies conducted worldwide.
