What comes to your mind when you hear the phrase "animated film"? The first is, of course, cartoons. A large number of them are released every year - from short films to series. However, this is not the only product that exists on the market. In addition to cartoons, corporate, commercial and social animation films as well as educational videos are popular now. Therefore, the area of application for sound animation is very wide.
It is in animation that the voice plays an important role, because the video sequence can be not only colourful and dynamic, but also quite minimalistic, and only due to the charming voice may the character seem "alive" and "natural". For example, as in the well-known and so much loved by children "Peppa Pig".
The number of views, earnings from screenings and the popularity of an animated film all directly depend on the quality of the voice acting, on whether the audience will buy the voiceover. After all, the voice can both enliven and make any character bright and memorable, and spoil even the most exciting video sequence with fake acting. Therefore, it is very important to use a voice artist with experience in voice-over animation, who will masterfully play the role of any character and will be able to voice it as "vividly" as possible.
You can record the voice-over from scratch when creating an animated film or when translating it from the original language, this process is called localization. Often, full professional dubbing of animated films is easier than feature films because the actor does not need to do any lip-syncing. It is important that native speakers participate in the process of localizing an animated film because the peculiarities of a foreign language can affect the intonation of the speech and other subtleties of voice-over recording. In our company you can order not only dubbing, but also professional translation of the text.
We know everything about voice-over recording and have a wealth of experience in this field, so if you want find perfect voice talents and record the voice-over of a children's short/full-length animated film, TV series or video for YouTube, or order the localization of a ready-made film, we will gladly take over the entire process of its voice-over recording, from the voice casting stage to the delivery of a ready-made audio track.
Voices for cartoons. Animation types and cartoon voice over features
The nature of the voice-over of different types of animated films will differ, because they pursue different goals and objectives:
- Animation for kids is distinguished by an increase in emotionality and accuracy in the portrayal of characters’ personalities.
- Educational animation should clearly communicate the information in a voice pleasant to listen to. Intonation should be used correctly to aid in the interpretation of the recording.
- Commercial advertising animation should arouse the consumer's interest in the product and encourage him to make a purchase.
- Corporate animation should inspire pride and rally staff around the company's corporate values.
- Social advertising videos are designed to encourage people to think and to make them more conscious of the environment and other pressing problems of societ
Let’s take a closer look at the distinctive features of children’s animated films and educational video clips, which also happen to be the two most popular types of animation.
Voices for animation. Features of cartoon voice acting
When creating children's animated films, a special and very important place is occupied by the voice acting of the characters. We recognize the voices of our favorite cartoon heroes from childhood even with our eyes closed, and we can recite their lines by heart. The character’s voice tells the audience about his character, mood, appearance, habits and other characteristics.
Getting used to the character for animation voice over
Children are perhaps the most demanding audience, they immediately hear falsehood and will not watch the cartoon if they do not like the characters. That is why one of the distinguishing features of voicing children's animations is the need for the voice talents to get used to mirroring the image of their character. At the same time, exaggerated diction is required in order for the timbre and tonality of the voice to fully convey the personality of the cartoon character.
Recording the voiceover of the cartoon before creating the video
Often, the animation film is dubbed before the video is created. This is due to the fact that the voice talents need to lip-sync and this is easier to do when the cartoon character's speech in the video is created based on the existing audio recordings of his lines. The convincing acting of voice actors often inspires animators to create truly "lively" and attractive characters. Therefore, the voice acting process has a great affect on how memorable an animated film will turn out.
Voices for cartoons: options for animation voice acting
Children's voices - To record the voice acting of children's cartoons, children's voices are often used, however, despite a fairly large base, they are not so easy to pick up. Children grow up fast, and voices change, so we monitor the relevance and constantly update our voice bank.
Voice actors imitating children's voices - There are many skilled voice talents who can also successfully change the timbre and tone of their voice, making it kind of "cartoonish" for voicing a wide variety of characters. Usually, these are women, although there are also men, there are much fewer of them.
Songs in cartoons
Often it may be necessary to perform songs that are characterized by incendiary and emotional performances in children's animations. For such purposes, professional voice actors or movie and pop stars may be invited to record songs and voice-over for popular cartoons.
You can find examples of various types of voiceover for animation on our website.
Features of educational videos dubbing
Unlike animated films, educational videos are usually voiced using the voice of a single narrator. At the same time, the voice should be calm, with logically placed pauses, there is no need for any acting.
Voiceover works in combination with the video sequence and should present different types of information in the most efficient way depending on the complexity of the information in the video clips. Here there is no need to do any lip-syncing. The voiceover should just be synced with the parts of the video sequence that it describes.
The process of creating voice over for cartoons in our company
Stages of work
You might wonder how to voice over a cartoon. The voice-over process will depend on the type of animated film and the type of voice-over, but in general it consists of several stages:
- voice casting
- creating timecode for the script
- synchronization of audio recording with the video sequence
- voice-over recording
- mixing audio tracks
- sound track processing and selection of sound effects
- editing of the final audio track
- mixing audio and video tracks
We can step in at any stage and takeover the work to bring your plan to fruition. Let's look at each of the localisation and voice over services more carefully.
Selection of voices for animation or casting (optional)
After reading the script, you need to choose the appropriate voices for the characters in the video. You can choose them yourself from our database, or we can provide a selection of several suitable voices based on our experience.
-For projects starting from 10 minutes, we will make a free custom demo recording with each voice up to one minute. When you hear exactly how your text will sound, it will be easier for you to choose the right voice-
When organizing the voice-over process, the director and the actors may be located in different parts of the world, but this does not prevent us from organizing high-quality remote communication that enables the director to help the actor choose the right intonation when doing the voice-over. After all, to record the same line, it may take more than one take, this gives the sound engineer the chance to later choose the most expressive and most suitable version.
Synchronization of audio recording with video sequences
Subsequently, the sound engineer synchronizes the recorded tracks with the video sequence so that the lines fit into the scenes.
Mixing audio tracks
The recorded tracks of different characters are combined into a single audio track, which will then be synchronized with the video

Our skilled sound engineer watches the video and selects the sounds and musical compositions that best match the events in the video. We can do this either at our discretion or according to your criteria.

Editing the final audio track
Voice tracks, sound effects and music are combined into a single audio track. We provide the finished track for you to check. You can listen to it directly from our cloud storage. If required, we will make the necessary corrections before delivering the final track.

The cost of professional voice over services for cartoons
How much does voiceover for animated films cost? First of all, the price of voice acting depends on the type of animated film and the required type of voice acting. The number and qualification of the actors involved is of great importance. Since the work of celebrities can cost many times more than the work of ordinary voice actors, this will also affect the price, especially if you have to involve several people.
The total time of voice-over can also vary from a few minutes to several hours, and therefore the cost of voice-over will also change.

On behalf of my company I would like to thank you for the excellent job you've done with our presentation project. I realize that I've been a very picky customer, as this project is very important to me, it is my big concern, the way one of my best and favourite clients showroom and presentation materials look.
They have called me and said the exhibition was a success and a few people commented on how great their foreign language video looked. I'm proud that my company was able to provide them with high-quality vids – with your help. I'd like to personally thank Anna, your manager, for being quick, patient and efficient and dealing with my worries and requests and changes in a highly professional way.
Next time I need Arabic, Farsi and Turkish voiceovers? I know where I'm going.
Wishing you and yours all the best,
To whomever it may concern,
Think Big! is has been working in e-learning and education for several years and we used to be limited to selling only to English-speaking markets, until we decided that we need to localize our applications for various other markets and go global.
So far we have completed 5 large e-learning quests with Great Voices and have been very happy with the output. We’d like to note that the translation and voice quality is always on par and our managers have commented on Great Voices’s staff’s attention to details and great communication.
We check our localized apps sales stats and we like how it goes.
