My name is Simonetta Ronconi and I am a Native Italian Voice Over Talent and Translator living in Amsterdam. I provide the international creative community with voice-overs and translations for their publishing projects and audio post-productions in Italian – business to business.
My extensive experience allows me to deliver translations and voice-overs with just the right tone of voice for your Italian speaking clients and potential clients.
As a translator, translating from English, Dutch and French into Italian, I specialize in museum audio guides, marketing, localization projects and subtitles.
Knowing and understanding the cultural differences existing between Italy and other countries – Northern Europe and North America in particular – I can culturally adapt my interpretation to convey your specific message, taking into consideration the various and influential elements, intentions and nuances.
I can thus enhance your publishing or media projects with just the right interpretation, be it television or radio commercials, corporate videos, web-explainers, e-learning programs, audio guides, online product presentations, interactive voice response systems, tutorials, navigation systems, language courses or your latest assignment.
Over the years I have recorded extensively in clients’ designated studios in The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and UK. Since 2004 I have also been recording and post-producing voiceover projects in my own broadcast-quality recording studio, reaching a wide range of countries and clients, especially in Europe and in North America.
Versatile, creative and coachable I have developed expert self-directing and editing skills.
I am happy to record short custom demos and help check texts. When approved, I can deliver within 24-48 hours and be directed while recording with Source Connect or Skype, if needed.

‘Simonetta heeft echt alles in huis wat je vandaag van een professionele stem verwacht. Ze is flexibel, werkt snel, efficiënt, en leeft volledig mee met de opdracht waarvoor ze inleest. En… misschien wel het allerbelangrijkste voor een native speaker die niet in haar eigen land verblijft: ze heeft een allround ‘accentloos’ taalgebruik. Geloof me, bij Italiaanse native stemmen is dit zeker niet altijd het geval!’

‘Ampiamente nei tempi, aperta al confronto, disponibile per rivedere alcuni spezzoni, in linea con il brief e la qualità richiesta.’
