As a global leader in mobile communications, BlackBerry revolutionised the mobile industry when they first released an email pager in 1999. Today, BlackBerry aims to inspire their millions of customers around the world by continuously pushing the boundaries of mobile experiences. Established companies such as Blackberry demand excellence and the highest level of detail so when they decided to work with us on a voice over project involving these instructional videos for their latest products, we were determined to produce something we could all be really proud of.
The first stage in the project was the translation of the original English narration into ten languages – Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Thai, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Spanish (Latin American) and Chinese Cantonese, which we have shown you here – for five different mobile products; so in total, we provided our translation and voice over services for 49 videos.
Our skilled translators set to work translating the English transcript while our Project Managers put together a shortlist of Chinese Cantonese voice over talents that met the client’s brief. Once the client had chosen their ideal Cantonese voice over talent to showcase the new products and approved our translations of the script, we set to work in our London recording studio.
Our dedicated sound engineers were joined in the studio by a Language Director to ensure the smooth running of the voice over recording session as well as the client who oversaw the sessions and helped direct the talent. Working together, we guaranteed that the voice over sessions were efficient so we could produce the perfect finished product for our client.
We’re already excited for the next project we have lined up with them and hope we can continue to develop the great partnership that we have developed.
