5.1 Mix for Arabic Dubbing Movies

It's always exciting to work on cool projects. That's exactly what we have been doing recently at the studio and it's just great!

Recording Studio for Arabic Projects

For the last couple of weeks, we've been receiving quite a few emails from foreign clients asking us about how to choose which dialect they need to adopt for the dubbing projects in Arabic. It also seems that all the soaps that are being dubbed into Arabic c are being done in the Syrian dialect.

In my opinion, Syrian dialect has picked up in the dubbing of soaps in Arabic, just because the production [...]
