Croatian voice overs: what you need to know

Croatian is a South Slavic language, with around 5.6 million native speakers. Croatian is an official language in Croatia as well as one of the official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.

Croatian is also spoken in surrounding Southeast European countries – Montenegro, Chech Republic, and Slovakia.

Did you know:

While technically Croatian is a variety of Serbo-Croatian languages, it is internationally accepted as an independent language

Language History

Like all four Serbo-Croatian languages, Croatian roots reach an ancient language of Old Church Slavonic. As a separate language, Croatian appeared at around the 11th century – that’s when the first written Croatian sources appear.

When the Balkan region was unified under one country of Yugoslavia, Serbian was the official language of the region and Croatian was greatly influenced by the official language.

When Croatia declared its independence in 1991, one of the main goals was to restore and “purify” the language from foreign influences. As a result, modern Croatian as it is spoken today has a very distinct vocabulary.

Close Relations

Because of the same Serbo-Croatian roots, Croatian is very closely related to other languages in this language group: Bosnian, Serbian, and Montenegrian. Interestingly, all Serbo-Croatian language varieties are mutually intelligible. So a Croatian speaker will have no problems understanding Serbian, for example.

However, Croatian vocabulary is rather unique when compared to other Serbo-Croatian languages.

While Serbian, Bosnian, and Montenegrian widely borrowed words from Turkish, Latin, and Greek, Croatian vocabulary has very few loanwords. Most words in Croatian are coined from Slavic morphemes and not borrowed from foreign languages.

Did you know:

The Serbo-Croatian language was the official language of Yugoslavia. After its dissolution in 1992, four standard forms of the language (Serbian, Croatian, Montenegrin, Bosnian) became the official languages of newly independent countries. As a result, all Serbo-Croatian languages are very similar.

Accents and Voice Over Tips

There are three regional dialects of Croatian: Shtokavian, Chakavian, and Kaikavian. However, standardized Croatian is mostly used in everyday life. The language standard, which is used in education, media, and politics is based on the Western Shtokavian dialect.

The trickiest thing when recording a Croatian voice over is definitely its similarity to other Serbo-Croatian languages.

Because all languages are mutually intelligible and have only minor differences, it might be difficult to distinguish between the languages themselves. How do you know if it’s Croatian, Serbian, Montenegrin, or Bosnian?

It’s important to note several important differences that separate Croatian from the rest of the pack. For example, Croatians say ‘bog’ when saying hello, while Serbians prefer ‘zdravo’. Additionally, Croatians add a different suffix to the loanwords. The suffix -irati is preferred in Croatian, but -ovati in Serbian. In this case, all these subtle variations really make a world of difference.

Words per minute

As for the speed of spoken Croatian – it always depends on the situation, just like with all languages. Balkan languages are not considered fast or slow-spoken.

Recording an academic presentation? Make sure you’re speaking clearly and not too fast. Working on an audiobook? Slow it down and let the listeners enjoy it. It’s all about the context!
