Hi, I'm Sjors. Pronounced "Shorse".
Pronunciation is kind of my thing.
I've been doing voice over work and narration in Dutch, the national language of the Netherlands, since 2009. I was born and raised in Utrecht, the Netherlands, but currently work from my home studio in Berlin, Germany. This makes my work very exciting, because I do projects for many international clients. I love telling stories, and finding the best ways of delivering them in a range of different mediums.
Some clients I have worked for:
About my voice
As a trained voice actor with years of experience, I can work on a wide range of projects. My specialties are museums, education (e-learning) and health care, but I also do audiobooks, commercials, animation, voice response, dubbing, TV, explanation videos, radio and more.
My regular voice balances between young adult and adult male. I speak Dutch without an accent: neutral and professional, but friendly, warm and convincing. It's great for explaining your story to a broad audience. If needed, I can provide different tones of voice, and character voices.
Whatever your needs, we will work together to create the best impression for your audience.
Home studio or sound studio recording
I have a small home recording studio, which allows me to produce quality recordings, fast & reliably. However, if you prefer to work with a sound studio and a professional audio technician, I am also happy to record elsewhere. Just book a studio, or let me book one for you.
Editing and delivery
Recordings can be sent either raw, or cleaned and edited - to your preference. The audio can also be timed to video. You will receive high quality digital audio files that can be used immediately. If anything is not to your satisfaction, a re-recording is free of charge.
Copywriting and proofreading
You don't have everything prepared yet? No problem! I can assist you in a number of ways. If you have a Dutch version of the text already, I can proofread and test read it to make sure everything works and sounds well. If not, I can write a fitting text for your project.
Localization and translation
If you have an English or German text, I can translate it to Dutch for you. I speak Dutch, English and German, and can work in all three, due to my work in translation and localization. I can translate from English and German to Dutch, and can, on request, also provide voice over in all 3 languages (with a minimal Dutch accent).
Do you like what you hear?
If you need more information, go ahead and ask me anything.
My standard rates can be found below, but I will happily send you a personal quote. Every project is different.
If needed, I can even send you a FREE test recording, to hear if my voice works for you. No obligations.
