Voice over in Eritrea
Let's face it- it's quite challenging to come across an Afar voice over service that can convey the authentic experience with your content. There's no question that most voice over companies put a lot of effort to achieve it. They review customer materials, assign appropriate translators, proofread translated scripts, organize castings and select the most suitable voice actors to match the original voices. Recording and post-production take place in an acoustically treated, secure studio environment and the file delivery of the translated version is usually easy and convenient.
But there's a catch.
Your original content is produced in another country and within a very different cultural context. That's why simply translating it into Afar is not nearly enough to convey its creative intent. In result, an Afar, or any other language version, becomes a distant reflection of the original. And shows that are a huge success on one market end up being mediocre on others after voicing.
To help you craft an authentic experience with your content in Eritrea and achieve a native feel, we apply a culture-first approach on localization. We produce a voice over that considers all local norms and traditions to recreate a culturally relevant, immersive and engaging viewer experience. Thanks to our Afar voice over services you connect to your local market on a cultural level. Translated lines sound as natural as in the original dialogues while capturing all language nuances. We breathe life into your stories and bring your characters closer to the hearts of local viewers.
Here's the deal- it takes just 3 easy steps with us to make the perfect voice over in Afar:

Afar voice over services
Why you need Afar voice over services is what determines our approach on your VO project. We align with your business goals to define success before planning and executing on production. Voice over (voiceover, voice-over) is mostly used by Entertainment, Education, Media, Technology, Film and Video game industries for making their videos accessible to a local audience. Voice over, also referred to as "UN style", is a production technique where a voice that is not a part of the narrative is added to the media file. We mean voice over when we hear the voice of someone we can't see on the video. The script is recorded by a voice artist off-screen, generally in a narrative, storytelling tone. Voice over is the preferred approach on localization for short-form audio-visual content of narrative or documentary nature where translation of the script is the main objective.

Professional Afar voice actors
All our voice actors and actresses are based in Eritrea. We are well aware that many Eritrean nationals live abroad and some of them have a professional voice acting background or even a home-based voice over recording studio. Sure, a mother tongue is developed phonetically and grammatically in early childhood. However, when living in a foreign country, especially for a long time, there is a risk of developing an accent which we are not willing to take when working on your Afar voice over project. Thus all our Afar voice over actors reside in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Djibouti.
Experienced Afar voice artists
Our native Afar voice artists paint beautiful pictures in words. They capture the nuances of the Afar language to enrich the images through sound and create authentic personalities. Besides the official language, we also cover all the local Afar accents and remote dialects. And if you need an Afar-accented English to add some local flavor, we've got you covered!

What is Afar famous for
Afar, located in the northeastern part of Ethiopia, is renowned for its unique and otherworldly landscapes, making it a captivating destination for travelers and scientists alike. The region is part of the East African Rift, a tectonic plate boundary where the African and Somali plates are slowly drifting apart. This geological phenomenon has given rise to the Danakil Depression, one of the hottest and lowest places on Earth. The Danakil Depression is characterized by its harsh and surreal environment, featuring colorful hot springs, volcanic craters, and vast salt flats. One of the most iconic features is the Afar Triple Junction, where three tectonic plates meet, creating an otherworldly landscape of fissures, faults, and volcanic activity. The area is home to the Afar people, a nomadic community adapted to the challenging conditions of the region.
Afar is also renowned for the Erta Ale volcano, a continuously active volcano with a permanent lava lake. This mesmerizing natural wonder attracts adventurers and scientists, providing a unique opportunity to witness the raw power of the Earth's geothermal forces. The journey to Erta Ale involves traversing rugged terrains, adding an element of adventure to the experience. In addition to its geological significance, Afar holds archaeological importance, with the discovery of the famous fossil hominid "Lucy" in the 1970s, a key find in the study of human evolution. Overall, Afar's fame stems from its extreme landscapes, geological wonders, and contributions to our understanding of the Earth's history and human evolution.
