The history about the German language
The German Language
About the German language
What you need to know about German voice overs. Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, and Belgium all have German as an official language.
That equates to around 100 million native speakers and another 30 million who speak it as a second language. With four cases (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative), three genders (masculine, feminine, neuter), two numbers (single, plural), and strong and weak verbs, German is an inflected language.
Many terms are derived from Latin and Greek, with a few acquired from French and Modern English.
The Evolution of the German language
It should come as no surprise that German is a member of the German language family. It was not, however, until the collapse of the Holy Roman Empire that it became an autonomous language.
The Thuringian-Upper Saxon, Upper Franconian, and Bavarian dialects are all included into Standard German. This indicates that German is most comparable to other languages founded on High German dialects, such as Luxembourgian and Yiddish. German shares many similarities with English, Dutch, and Scandinavian languages.
Afrikaans and Frisian languages are also linked. An intriguing grammatical trait of this group is compound nouns, which are formed by combining multiple nouns to form a new one.
Words per Minute for German Voice Over
German writings can grow by up to 35% when translated from English. Reading speeds are slower in German because words are longer. Approximately 20% slower. German and English have comparable syllable rates (which means that speakers of both languages can pronounce a similar number within a given time).
However, owing to the variances in text length, we recommend aiming for 120 words per minute. Please consider the information density and target audience for your video as well. Talking to children? Reduce the speed. Trying to communicate difficult information to a professional audience? Allow them time to absorb it.
Accents and German Voice Over Styles
Although there are minor spelling variations in Switzerland, written German is uniform.
