Quality Zulu voice-over services and artists from Adelphi
Adelphi is a Zulu voice-over agency with a range of Zulu voice artists and talents to choose from. We produce and record Zulu voice-overs for translation agencies, corporate companies, and media organizations worldwide. Zulu translations can be provided by our own in-house translation department that specializes in voice-over translations.
At Adelphi, we offer professionally edited audio as a standard for all of our voice-over projects. But what exactly does this mean? Go here and we will briefly look at what we do with the audio before we deliver it to our clients, turning the ‘raw’ unedited audio data into professional, clean-sounding voice-over files. Also included in our quality checks are, listening to the audio to check if errors have been made, pronunciation is correct, all the segments have been recorded, the timings are right, files are correctly split and named; we take out overly long pauses and normalize the levels so all the audio is of the same volume.

As part of our Zulu voice-over service, Adelphi provides a full translation service to our customers. Our experienced translation team will work with you to fully understand your project in order to effectively manage the workflow from concept to completion. Adelphi ensures that all our translators are professional and work only in their mother tongue. This ensures accuracy.
If the voice-over is going to be used over a video of a different language, then the voice-over translation may include time-codes to help the voice-artist and engineer sync up the voice to the video. Style of translation can be important for voice-over translation and must reflect the genre, such as if it is for marketing, public information, drama, etc. The translator will receive a copy of the video as a reference and be instructed to translate in a style matching the source material.
Adelphi Studio is part of Adelphi Translations Ltd a full-service translation agency producing not only Zulu translations but also Zulu typesetting and Zulu Subtitling.
We also provide transcription services in any language, to provide time-coded scripts for translation. The length of many languages will expand when compared to original English and care must be taken in the translation to keep the true meaning of the English, while staying within the time frame allowed. For voice-overs and depending on the language, we sometimes have to edit the English to make a more concise version of the original, this is because the spoken version of many languages is much longer than the English and would not fit in the allocated time slot. Of course, the edited English is approved by the client before translation into Zulu.
