Hello,

I have heard about linguists offering voice-over services. Would you be so kind as to tell me more about what voice-over is, what equipment is necessary, and if the rate is higher for voice-overs than for translations?

Thanks very much in advance for your help and advice.

Kind regards,

Mikaële

it depends... Dec 5, 2005

Voice-over work usually takes place in a studio, paid by the hour + travelling/accomodation/food expenses.

I started off as a language monitor, where I would follow the script while the artist was speaking and indicate where to stop/start or where the artist ought to repeat the line again etc.

There is not much demand for doing voice-overs from home, although you can get a microphone for under 20 euro if you want to create online voice samples.

However, you must bear in mind that professional actors get preference to do this kind of work. It is only when the client requires specific accents (etc) and there is no actor available who can provide it, that translators/linguists/native speakers get brought in.
