Voice over in English


Let's face it- even with so many English voice over providers out there, it is still quite challenging to come across an English voice over service that can both meet your business goals and fit your original media needs. There is no doubt that most English voice over companies put a lot of effort to achieve it- most have an extensive number of voice talents available; some cover various accents or simply work at affordable rates. Many record and produce in an acoustically treated, professional studio environment, have skilled personnel and strive to ensure fast, secure delivery.


But there's a catch.


The original English media serves multiple purposes beyond providing a linguistic comprehension and simply placing suitable English voices or producing decent quality audio is not enough to fulfill and enhance the production intent of your content. In a result, your media is often irrelevant to certain groups of viewers or poor as a source material before localization in another language and instead of expanding your market by including new audiences, it ends up being a sunk cost.


At GoPhrazy London we specialize in English voice over services where we have been setting the quality standards in the UK for the last 25 years. Our cross-disciplinary competences in the fields of linguistics, marketing, production and culture make us stand out from the crowd and provide you with a competitive advantage based on the original English audio over your rival companies.

From considering your marketing goals and creative intent to addressing the specifics of your target audiences, we take a culture-first, holistic approach to your media and enhance the viewer experience while at the same time we turn it into a multipurpose, global media tool.

English voice over services

English voice over services


Why you need English 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.


British English voice over


British English, often referred to as Queen's English is the official language of the United Kingdom, spoken by 59.4 million people (98% of UK population). The UK includes also 14 overseas territories like Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands and a part of Antarctica. It is also home to 14 other languages like Welsh, Scottish and Irish, along with other numerous immigrant languages.


GoPhrazy provides British English voice over in the following accents:


  • Scottish
  • Irish
  • Welsh
  • Regional (Geordie, Cockney, Northern, West Country, Midlands, Estuary)



American English voice over


Given the size and cultural diversity within the United States, American English has both regional and nuanced differences. It includes many pronunciation, vocabulary and spelling characteristics that are unified throughout the country but distinct from other English accents. Many Americans use Standard American English which is perceived as "neutral" as it is considered free from ethnic, cultural and regional differences. It is also the English accent that is used in official media. GoPhrazy provides American English voice overs for both broadcast and non-broadcast content.


International English voice over


Thanks to globalization and technology there is an on-going trend towards a "neutral" accent for all kinds of English voice over production. The International English accent is for content that targets global markets where English is not the native language of the audience. Foreign viewers understand or speak English to different degrees and varying levels while businesses don't always want to sound as being native English. International English is meant to be a catch-all for any brand, product or message that distances from identification to any particular country or region.


Accented English voice over


Although businesses and brands address their international audiences in English, they often intend to sound more "native" to a foreign language audience. In order to communicate with a global authority to a local group of viewers, brands often use a local native voice that speaks accented English to establish credibility and connect to the public on a different level. This is a combination of authority and trust that grabs the attention and triggers the desired response.


GoPhrazy provides Accented English voice overs in 150+ languages.

Professional English voice actors


All our voice actors and actresses are based in-location. We are well aware that many English-native 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 English voice over project. Thus all our English voice over actors reside in-location.


Experienced English voice artists


Our native English voice artists paint beautiful pictures in words. They capture the nuances of the English language to enrich the images through sound and create authentic personalities. Besides the official language, we also cover all the local English accents and every remote dialects. And if you need an English-accented tongue to add some local flavor, we've got you covered! Thanks to our artists and directors, your media is believable, realistic and engaging in English!


English voice over training


All our English voice over talents are required to retain the authenticity from the original dialogue. To ensure a superior voice acting performance, each voice artist goes through intensive training before becoming a GoPhrazy approved talent. We apply qualification tests on our English voice actors, including voicing various characters and content of different genres. Besides voice acting, we also put a lot of extra stress on grammar to make sure that our English voice overs are always accurate and linguistically compliant with the English language, the accent and its cultural norms.
