Why should you localize your voice-over in Dutch?
There are approximately 28 million Dutch-speakers around the world. Most of them reside in the Netherlands and Belgium (about 23 million native speakers). Most of the population of Suriname is Dutch-speaking as well, and it is an official language in Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. Finally, there are about 500,000 speakers living in the US, Canada, Australia, and parts of France.
Although it’s a relatively small country, the Netherlands is a powerhouse economy – 17th-largest overall and 10th in nominal GDP per capita. Voice-over localization is a proven, scalable way to leverage e-Learning modules, marketing videos, corporate presentations, audiobooks, commercials, video games, and new media productions – all for expansion into this thriving economy. Likewise, media and entertainment producers can’t ignore the lucrative revenue streams accessible to TV and film productions that invest in Dutch lip-sync dubbing.
Flemish Dutch / Belgian Dutch
Dutch is also spoken in the region of Flanders, in the northern part of Belgium – thus the names Flemish Dutch and Belgian Dutch, or even Southern Dutch. It is the native language of over 6 million people in Flanders. While its accent and vocabulary are very similar to the ones in standard Dutch, recordings going into this region benefit greatly from casting more localized voice-over talents.
