Our English Voice Overs for Absinthe’s Video

Here at Metro Audio and Video, we’re a New York City voice over agency that specializes in foreign language and English voice overs. Our expertise lies in delivering exceptional multimedia solutions to clients worldwide.

As an example of our work, this video for Absinthe was originally recorded in European French. It needed to undergo translation, localization, and narration into US English. To achieve this, we required a male voice over actor with a professional and informative tone, a general American accent, and a standard-to-slow pace. Additionally, we needed to ensure that the lip movements matched the English audio seamlessly, which is known as dubbing.

Dubbing presented some challenges, including finding the perfect voice talent to match the passion of the original speaker and keep the listener engaged throughout the narration. Our team worked diligently to deliver a final product that not only sounded natural but also conveyed the original message accurately.

The English Language

The English language is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. It is the official language in over 50 countries, and is spoken as a second language by millions of people globally. The origins of the English language can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon period in Britain, where it evolved from a combination of Germanic dialects. Today, English is a diverse language with a rich vocabulary, complex grammar, and multiple dialects.

A notable feature of the English language is its multiple dialects. The different dialects of English have evolved in different regions of the world, and each has its own unique accent, vocabulary, and grammar. For example, British English is different from American English in terms of spelling, pronunciation, and vocabulary. Similarly, Australian English has a distinct accent and vocabulary compared to British and American English. This diversity can create communication barriers, but it also adds richness to the language.

The English language has become the lingua franca of the world, meaning it is the primary language of communication for people from different linguistic backgrounds. This is largely due to the influence of the British Empire and the United States on global politics, culture, and commerce. Today, English is used as a common language in international business, science, and academia. It is also the language of the internet, with the majority of online content written in English.
