Hi, My day job is recording voice over at our studio here in Taiwan. I was thinking to put together a language pack to upload. I’ve searched through the library and have found some language uploads (counting to 10 in Spanish, some English phrases, etc) but I’m not sure if my time spent will be rejected or not.
I’m thinking to include common Chinese phrases, counting, etc. I would likely need to make a few packs out of this since there would be more than 25 files I’d imagine. (professional announcer voice and natural everyday voice; male and female speakers; child speaker; etc)
What do you think? Would the right phrases/words be useful? Would they NOT get rejected? I’m thinking they could work for games, websites and videos. Like if someone wanted “Hello” in many different languages, they would find the Chinese it in that pack.
We get a lot of Chinese voice over work; it seems pretty popular at the moment. And a lot of it is very similar. (think language learning) These pack would certainly save people money. Our minimum charge for ANY work (except IVR recordings) is $100. Counting from 1 to 10…$100. So definitely a possible money saver for people.
Anyhow, I’ll have to pay our talent to record these, so I don’t want to spend money on something that’s going to get rejected!
Thanks for your thoughts!
Hi Buddhabeats, at this stage they would not be accepted. Aj accepts lyrics and vocals in English only, with few exceptions. This may change in the future, but for the time being it is not possible, due to lesser overall market demands and the lack of ability to adequately review such submissions.
Your understanding in this matter is appreciated. Thank you for the interest nonetheless.
Thanks. Exactly why I wanted to ask first. Not wanting to drop any dimes, but I’m curious how “Spanish Alphabet” made it into the collection. Older submission?
And to be clear, if I submitted several language packs in English with the same plan I had for Chinese, then that would be OK, right? (we also record English voice over here) It wouldn’t be high on my priority list, but something further down the line.
