Translators-India can carry out this work for clients wishing to use existing audio, video or film tracks for overseas markets. First the script is translated appropriately into the target language. Then we select a voice-over or dubbing artist for client approval before recording takes place. We can organize the whole process if required.
Translators-India is doing voice-overs for Promos, Commercials, Industrials and Documentaries, but that's not all ! There's also the internet, audio prompts for equipment used in medicine as well as countless devices that make up the growing world of new technologies. All of this done from a professionally equipped, India based private recording studio.

Neumanns (vintage and new): U47 tube, M269c tube, M149 tube, and a
When walking into any studio to record a vocal (or anything for that matter) the first thing most people scan for are the microphones that will be used. As many will confer, the sight of a Neumann mic evokes a sense of confidence and for some, even relief, as the microphone is "the" most influential link in the signal chain. There has been a common analogy to explain the character(s) of mics by comparing them to the lenses of a camera, in that each takes its own unique picture of the sound. Holding to that analogy then, Neumanns would be the Leicas of the recording world. First introduced in 1928 with the CMV3 (the first mass produced condenser mic), Neumanns have been the implement of choice in making crucial recordings. Since then, the talents of the skilled workers who carefully assemble them by hand have upheld the reputation of these legendary mics. Since my first encounter with these great microphones, it's safe to say that I've become "obsessed" with them. So, here's a look at my small but growing Neumann collection along with a bit of background information on each, they are the M149, U47, M269c, TLM193 and TLM103.

Cables/ConnectionsHigh definition microphone cables give you noticeable sonic improvements. The "Champagne" cable I use (by B.L.U.E.) is the ultimate tube mic cable, with nothing comparable available anywhere. The audio signal conductors are separately shielded from all the other conductors, that along with the quality of wire used, equals an openness in sound that needs to be heard to be believed.
What links everything else in the studio is the ultimate in quad cable design, the Kiwi cable uses B.L.U.E.'s hand picked virgin proprietary materials. The quad design gives the cable an advantage when trying to achieve the highest quality recording where exquisite tonal quality is of the utmost importance. By using 4-22 Awg twisted pair conductors and a 95% tinned copper braided shield, this eliminates any matters of electromagnetic interference and micro phonic pick-up.
We have a large database of voice-over artists. Our rates are calculated by the hour (+ travel at cost) and depend on the language required. Our voice-over artists are based around the world, so we will find suitable artists as close to the venue as possible. We can translate the script if required. We can also organize a recording studio as necessary. We can advise on usage fees if the voice-over's work is going to be broadcast. We are also able to advise on lip-synching and dubbing and can offer a full production service as required.
