Swahili Voiceover Services


A voiceover can do so much more than subtitles. Spoken language has evolved alongside humans for countless millennia, but written language is a relatively new addition to our repertoire, and it took thousands of years before the majority of people were literate. Naturally, spoken language incorporates a far richer opportunity for nuance, with written language being fairly limited in what it can convey. This all means that when you’re presenting content—be it a documentary, product demo, movie, game, commercial, or anything else—a voiceover is always more powerful than words on a screen.

So, you know a voiceover is better for your content—but how do you commission one? Easy—you just send us a message here at As voiceover experts, we’ve put together several dedicated teams for different global languages, including the important East African lingua franca of Swahili. We have tons of talented Swahili narrators to choose from—working with your favorite, we’ll carefully record your script and hand off the recordings to our audio experts to edit the clips. Once they’re done, you’ll receive your Swahili voiceover, all ready for immediate implementation.

Reach new audiences all over East Africa with a Swahili voiceover.

If there’s one indigenous African language you’re likely to have heard of, it’s Swahili. This East African Bantu tongue is widely spoken as a lingua franca in Kenya, Tanzania, and parts of other East African countries, including Comoros, Mayotte, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi, and Madagascar. While Swahili only has around 18 million native speakers, the total number of speakers is estimated at around 200 million.

A voiceover in Swahili is an excellent way to speak to millions of new viewers in Kenya, Tanzania, and elsewhere in East Africa, but we can only produce a Swahili voiceover with a Swahili script. That’s where our Swahili translators come into play—you can hire them to translate your script. Considering how difficult Swahili is as a language, with its 18 noun classes and accompanying prefixes that append to nouns and the verbs, adjectives, and demonstratives modifying them, we highly recommend leaving Swahili translation to experienced professionals.

Improving your content with a professional voiceover

Adding a voiceover to your project is a great way to increase your audience’s appreciation of it. Your Swahili-speaking audience will be glad to listen to the information rather than reading subtitles, and people also retain information more effectively when it’s delivered through voice. Also, just the simple fact that you invested in a Swahili voiceover will make you look more professional!

With Swahili spoken as a lingua franca and learned by so many as a second language, most Swahili speakers are bilingual. Depending on their country of origin, they may also speak English, French, Arabic, or another language. With such a heterogeneous populace, the only way to reach all Swahili speakers is with a voiceover in Swahili, not English, French, or Arabic. We can help you reach audiences in cities all over East Africa, including Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, and elsewhere, with our Swahili voiceover services.

Investing in a high-quality Swahili voiceover

Ordering Swahili voiceover services can be intimidating, especially since it requires a monetary investment. But it’s worth it to put your money into a high-quality Swahili voiceover—working with amateurs will earn you a poor return on investment. In fact, if you work with inexperienced narrators and cheap equipment, your voiceover may not even be usable. So, work with Swahili voiceover professionals—the results will be worth it.

From Kenya to Tanzania and all over other Swahili-speaking regions of East Africa, we’ve scoured the area to find the foremost Swahili voice actors and recruit them to our team. They’re passionate about producing Swahili voiceovers, and having already worked on a diverse range of projects, they have the skills to deliver great voiceovers to just about any client.
