Job Description

Dear Voice over talent,

One of our clients is looking for Russian VO
talents for an upcoming project, and L10N vendors if you are also providing L10N service.

Let me share a bit more with you on the Russian VO request first. Most of our VO projects are e-learning/business training, non-broadcasted projects, require only clean narration, with noise filtering and files separation. There is one e-learning VO project that will start in June, including a few batches. The plan is to do one batch every 2 months. Various voice talents will be required per batch. The script will be translated to Russian for you before recording. But we don’t have the translations completed yet, so the number of words to be recorded by each actor is uncertain for now. The actual volume to be recorded will depend on customer’s final scripts.

If you are interested, please reply me with below inquires at your earliest convenience:

1) What's your per minute rate in USD for Finished Audio Time (the length of the final delivered audio track), including narration, studio fee/home studio, noise filtering, and sometimes files separation if required by client?

2) The average speech rate of each actor is required for our customer's reference. Please kindly time one of your average e-learning recordings and let us know your average speech rate in word/min.

3) We will send your voice sample for our customer’s selection, can you please send over some of your voice samples that could meet below requirements?

Requirements:
- e-learning narration, no additional special effects (such as music or background sounds);
- minimum of 1 minute to maximum 3 minutes audition files submitted for evaluation;

Other suggestion for the voice sample, but just for your reference as I personally think they are very basic for narration recordings.
- voice: should sound confident, need not necessarily smile while reading, but should not sound grim or somber; should be no obvious sibilance; should not be nasal with any evidence of
accent/dialect;
- tone: pleasant and moderately upbeat
- pitch in mid range, not too low/bass, not too high
- inflection should be natural (television commercial/ad tone is not acceptable)
- cadence and rhythm should be natural

4) Native speaker is a MUST for all projects.

5) Please indicate your years of experience in VO service. And it'd be great if you could list some of the audio projects you've done in the past for our reference.

6) What is your availability?

To give you more information about this project, I’d like to explain more. If your voice is selected by the customer, they will assign work volume to each actor depending on the voice they consider to be suitable for the character in the scripts, and of
course the per minute rate you offer.:) We’re sharing these info to our talents because this will be a long term project and we are not looking for just one time partnership, but for long-term cooperation with new partners. Therefore, please take this into consideration and offer us your best price possible. Thank you!

I’m looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
Have a nice day! :)

Best regards,

Nabil ALAOUI
