Job Description

We require a professional VO artist who speaks Mandarin and Cantonese as a first language to help create a new language version for one of our iPad applications.

This person must have an authentic accent and use correct pronunciation as these VOs will be used as part of a program to teach children basic words in Mandarin and Cantonese.

Preferably you should have their own studio or easy access to one as more VOs and or takes may need to be recorded in the future.

The VOs will be used in application that teaches children basic words and letters so it is important that pronunciation is correct but also fun (and a bit motherly). If you can, please download our existing example or check out the application on this short video:

The scope of the project includes recording the following:

450 single words translated and recorded (Each word, letter, and phrase should be saved with a particular file naming convention supplied)
Individual files saved in a particular format, using syntax provided (mp3 or wav)
Consultation – let us know about certain requirements that might involve extra work before the project begins. For instance, in our existing versions we have the option of users tapping on the letters to hear the sound of the letters. What would be the equivalent in Cantonese / Mandarin? Do children learn these new words by sounding out the characters.

We are looking for an expert in the language who can help put together the project requirements for this language as well. There might be contract work available for consultancy outside of – but for the time being please make your bid for for 450 files recorded and translated, with some friendly advice on how we should be doing things for this language.

To be considered for this job please provide a sample of the following phrase:

"Is it a dog, a donkey, or an elephant?"

You could do this in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
