How the Price for Japanese Voice Over is Calculated

Price Payment Estimate


For most types of productions, the cost for Japanese voice over is based on the number of Japanese ideograms to be recorded.

If you don't have the Japanese script yet, an estimate can be made based on the number of minutes of Japanese voice over, or on the number of words in the corresponding English script.

In the case of Japanese voice over to be used in a commercial that will be broadcast on radio or TV, additional conditions may apply based on the reach the recording will have (broadcast nationally, regionally, or locally), and the on-air period; contract terms or buyout; etc.
