Voquent are proud to serve communities and individuals the world over to provide Afrikaans narrators for all your personal as well as commercial needs.
Narration (or vertelling in Afrikaans) is an important aspect of any video content, educational content, audiobook content, radio content, and many other sources on content. Due to this we have put in the hard work to source only the best narrators that the marketplace has to offer.
Our job is to connect your with authentic Afrikaans’ voices to make your project a reality.
Did you know famous actors such as Kandyse McClure and Charlize Theron call Afrikaan speaking nations their home? Not only that but the Afrikaan language is spoken by around 8.2 million people in the world; the majority of which resides in South Africa and Namibia.
Fun Fact: This study goes into the details of how Afrikaans formed, and it is a relatively new language in comparison to other world languages.
It is also worth noting that South Africa alone has 7.9 million people using video streaming services in the country and around 5.4 million audiobook downloads in the country generating a total of $221 million in revenue.
With so many speakers of Afrikaans making up these statistics, if your project is looking to tailor to those countries and their markets, then considering Afrikaans is a no-brainer!
Our narrators for Afrikaans’ are all vetted by our professional sound team to make sure they can provide high-quality content. They then go through an approval system just like all of our other voices to ensure that they have appropriate recording setups to meet the demand of quality required for all of our projects.
We do all of this to separate the good voices that don’t meet our standard requirements. We take a great deal of pride in all the work we do and we reflect this is who we work with to give your project life.
It is also important to us that we provide native Afrikaans narrators to give your project the authenticity of a true Afrikaans speaker. We make every effort possible to include a range of accents and dialects within the Afrikaans accent to give you as much choice as possible for your project requirements.
For instance, we will endeavour to get your specific Kaapse Afrikaans or Oranjerivierafrikaans if your project demands one of these specific dialects of the language. If you can't find what you are looking for, then you can contact us to see how we can help you.
Aside from the linguistic dialects, we are aware that your project may demand a specific accent within the Afrikaans language which is why we can recommend certain Afrikaans’ narrators on a project by project basis.
Our aim is to make the search for your perfect voice as easy and as streamlined as possible.
