Voiceovers and recording services in over 80 languages
Matinée Multilingual is a long established UK agency, offering some of the best voice professionals available. But unlike many other companies, we also have three voice recording studios and two video edit suites. This means we can offer a complete recording and localisation service from our media centre in Reading, close to London.
We've been helping companies select and record voice artists for over 25 years, and we've learnt a thing or two in that time. Both recording studios are Pro-Tools equipped and built to exacting BBC acoustic design. So you can be sure that your recordings will be delivered crisp and clear, and completely free from room noise and distortion.
Fees that won't smash your budget
We keep our fees to a minimum. You will definitely find our costs lower compared to our competitors. Put simply, we have positioned our voice-over rate card at the competitive end of the market, but without any compromise on quality. We also offer a simple, quick-quote service to give you a costing for your project within just one hour.
We're the service provider that will always try to help out and solve the challenges you encounter. So if your budget doesn't stretch to the voice artist you've chosen, we'll make a recommendation for an alternative talent, prepared to work at the rate you can afford.
Voice artist selection service
Please click this link for our English speaking voice artists. We have many more to choose from if none of these fit the bill. One of our helpful project management team will be delighted to help you find exactly the voice you are looking for. That's all part of the Matinée service, helping you find the right voice artist at the right price.
Please click this link for our Foreign voice-over artists. They are all native speakers, with experience in performing across all media types. Just select the language required using the selection box to the right hand side of this page, and you'll find a page dedicated to that language with voice-over demos to match.
Featured English voice-over professionals
Different types of agency and where we fit in
You will find three types of service on the web:
- Those that charge you direct, so that you choose your voice artist, you make a payment and submit your script. The files are then recorded and sent to you. Very little help and advice is given, you basically pay up and hope you get what you need.
- Then there are the type of service who have an 'exclusive contract' with the voice talent (well that's what they tell you...). They will want to know all about usage, and will generally make you feel they are doing you a huge favour by allowing you to hire their voice talent, and usually at a hugely inflated fee. Only use these people if you require exclusive voice talent.
- And then there are voice-over agencies such as Matinée Multilingual. We exist in the space in between the two above, where we offer so much more than the first, and are much more flexible than the second. Our project management team will help you secure the best voice artist or voice actor for your project, and then negotiate voice artist fees that you can afford.
Dubbing and narration
An excellent narrative will exude compassion, wisdom, authority and charm. And Matinée Multilingual has a wealth of voice-over professionals to choose from in over 80 languages.

Appeal to a wider audience by using a voice-over on your web site
Do you ever start to read something on a web page and then have to stop because you’re just too tired to carry on reading? If you have, you can bet so too have your customers.
All people have their own unique way of taking in information. Some like to watch visuals like videos and infographics, others enjoy reading and then there are the listeners.
If you want to market your brand to reach out to all people, then as well as text, think about creating visual information and using the power of the spoken word.
One of the things that helps your search engine ranking is the amount of time people spend on your web page, Google for example will pick up on the fact that people are spending time browsing and that your website must have something of value to offer. By offering people different methods of browsing your website, you are reaching out to a wider audience.
If you decide to use visuals with a voiceover, make sure that the recordings are done by professionals. A professional voice can enhance your website and ensure that you gain a wider audience. Professional voiceovers have been trained to get the inflections and speak with the correct tone of voice. They also know about speaking clearly and getting the timing right.
