Project Main Details

Mandarin textbook pronunciation audio 
*************************** - is a UK-based startup in language education, co-founded by two current Harvard University and University of Oxford students.

Our primary product is****************************************************** - a set of interactive lessons, learning tools and educational games for Japanese language learners.

Since launching ********** almost three years ago, we have expanded the offering to Russian and French languages, and due to popular demand, we are about to launch Mandarin ********** later this year.

The content of the website has been under preparation since last summer and we’re now looking for a voice over artist to record pronunciation audio for the new website.

The ideal candidate would have a voice that is youthful, but not childish (think someone in their 20s), preferably female, with a clear but friendly voice, and with as neutral/standard a dialect as possible (think received pronunciation in case of English). Thousands of people will be learning correct pronunciation from these voice samples, so it’s crucial that you have what it takes.

Relevant experience (radio/voice over/acting/singing, etc.) and access to a recording studio is a very big plus. Both are not a necessity, but the two factors tend to play a big role in our decision making and level of remuneration.

The time commitment is rather small, but long term. That is, you won't have to record more than 15 hours of audio for the entire duration of the project, but we might need them for an hour or two every few months for the coming year or so. That said, expect the workload to be slightly higher for the first month as we will need to record around 4-5 hours of audio in the initial batch.

The candidate we choose will be:
- Enthusiastic and passionate about teaching Chinese
- Willing to learn and respond to constructive feedback
- Able to manage their time effectively such that they can set, and meet deadlines
