Frequently Asked Questions

Look for the following things when you hire a voice actor for your elearning project.

  • You find the read engaging the whole way through

    This may seem obvious, but if you’re losing interest after hearing an audition, then chances are, the actor won’t be able to hold your audience’s attention for the duration of a course.

  • They have experience with long form projects such as elearning, audiobook narration, and more

    Long form reads are a unique form of voice over work, which requires endurance. Voice actors who have undertaken these projects previously have proved they can go the distance.

  • Their voice enhances the messaging of the content

    A distracting voice can come in many forms, including voices that are interesting. The read should be both engaging, as well as draw your attention to the importance of the material, all without taking attention from the content itself to ensure that the audience is learning and retaining your message.

  • Working with multiple voice actors for one project

    If you require multiple voice actors for a single project, it can be helpful to enable each voice actor to hear a vocal sample of their cast members.

  • Working together

    When voice actors work together, even remotely, their aim is to enhance the content and convey the message, along with ensuring that their voice fits within the end project seamlessly. By enabling each actor to hear their cast mates, you allow them to assess how their voice will fit amongst the other characters.

If you are getting your script translated, there are a few tips to keep in mind:
 
  • Understand the difference between translation and localization

    Translation takes your exact words and translates them directly into another language, while localization hones in on your message or sentiment (takes context into consideration) during the translation process. Localization may result in a completely different phrasing that still hits the same emotional tone or intention.

  • Highlight important keywords in your script

    When preparing a script, point out the ‘non-negotiable’ words that must be included in the final script as they are (that is, should not be translated). Some examples might be product names or legal terms associated with the project.

  • Properly prepare your script for localization

    When localizing your script, send an edited version of your original script off to your translator. Taking this step forces you to distill your message down to only the most important sentiments. The translator at the receiving end will then be able to sort out how a local speaker would communicate that same message, in their own way. And isn’t that the point of localization?

  • Plan ahead for script translation

    Remember that some languages, like Spanish and French, tend to get longer when translated from English. If you have a time limit you’re trying to maintain for your content, taking this into consideration by reducing your initial English script by that amount will ensure that the translated version you receive will be closer to the time required.
