Case Study: Multilingual lip-sync voice-over recordings – Disney Interactive
Disney Interactive required a multilingual lip-sync voice-over mix in 11 languages for an event promo. Disney’s aim was to demonstrate the range of languages they publish in, as well as the talents of the voice actors used.
Disney Interactive supplied audio from a 48 second clip of their movie – Monsters University, in all 11 languages. Matinée mixed the foreign audio translations of characters James P Sullivan and Mike Wazowski to create one soundtrack with all languages. The final mix was laid back to video and encoded as a high quality QuickTime .MOV file.

Case Study: Italian lip-sync voice-over recording for E-learning program
Matinée were selected to provide Italian lip-sync dubbing services for a series of corporate safety training videos. We first adapted the supplied scripts for lip-sync recording, which involves not only making the script shorter, but also making it better match the lip movements of the actors. We cast a male and female Italian voice artist that sounded similar to the American actors. Recorded time-sync to picture, then mixed and mastered the audio.
We were also required to encode the videos in both FLV and MP4 format, matching the clients strict specifications for file size and bit-rate to ensure it worked flawlessly in their eLearning platform.
Target your audience by speaking their language
If you sell or provide a service globally, then you should have your website in the languages of your foreign customers.
If a person can read a website in their own language, they are more likely to revisit it in the future and trust what they are reading. Localized web sites that recognise the differences between cultures will be much more successful than websites who only offer English voice and text.
Remember, what is acceptable in this country, may not go down so well somewhere abroad. If you have a picture, or a video of a woman driving a sports car, it won’t be acceptable in somewhere like Saudi Arabia, where women don’t drive. Chinese audiences relate the colour white with death, so advertising crisp white linen won’t go down well, changed to another colour and you have your target audience interested.
If your foreign visitors are able to see their own language on your website, it will garner trust and loyalty. They will be more likely to recommend you to family and friends and you will increase your reach.
