To help you better understand what to look for in a Chinese voice over talent, let us share some helpful information before you contact our Manhattan office.
Choosing a Good Chinese Voice Over
The first step in choosing a Chinese voice over talent from CMD is to decide whether you want a Chinese accent or a voice talent who speaks Chinese. If you are looking for a voice talent who is fluent in Chinese, you have three options to choose from, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Taiwanese.
If you are looking to get into the markets in mainland China, Mandarin and Cantonese are both sound options. Mandarin Chinese is most often spoken in northern and southwestern China. Mandarin is also the most popular language spoken across China. Cantonese, on the other hand, is most popular in Hong Kong and communities in southern China.
Taiwanese, however, is specific for people living in Taiwan. If you are looking to get into this market, you will want to have a voice over talent that is fluent in Taiwanese.
Traits to Look for in Voice Over Talent
There are a number of traits you should look for when choosing a voice over talent. Whether you are looking for a Chinese voice over or any other language or dialect, CMD goes through a rigorous selection process so you can be sure the voice over talent you choose has these traits. Some of these traits are:
Consistency: You should always make sure your voice over talent is consistent in their work and will be able to provide you with multiple takes. Be sure they are also enthusiastic so the energy levels are are consistent throughout the process.
Versatility: Even if you know exactly what you want your Chinese voice over to sound like, you should make sure the talent you hire is able to work in many different genres. Versatility is essential to a good voice talent, so this can show their quality of work.
High-Quality Demos: If you can hear background noise in your voice over talent’s demo, you will want to continue looking. High-quality demos are key and this includes operating out of a soundproof studio, free of any excess noise.
Fluency: When choosing a Chinese voice over talent, or any foreign language talent, you will need to make sure they are fluent in the language they claim. Inauthentic voice overs can be incredibly damaging to your company’s reputation.
Experience: For new talents, getting into the voice over industry can be incredibly difficult, but experience is an important trait your voice over talent should have. Look over their references and give their previous clients a call to see how they performed past jobs.
