Hi! I’m Momoyo.
I am a Japan-based translator and a bilingual voice over artist with 15 years of experience. If you’re looking for a professionally trained native Japanese female voiceover artist, you’ve come to the right place. With my warm, authoritative and rich voice, I have served countless happy clients including Roche Diagnostics, NEC, Adobe Systems and so on. My voice is especially famous in Japan for a mnemonic of a pharmaceutical company’s TVCM that every Japanese knows.
My passion is to help bring your story to life with my voice. Looking forward to working with you in your next project!
Recent Voice Over Projects
Here you will find some videos of recent voice-over projects with my voice recorded in both English and Japanese. The left column is the Japanese version and the right column is the English version. If you work with a bilingual narrator, you can easily turn your English video into a Japanese version. You don’t even need to have a Japanese script. I can translate it from English to Japanese, record voice and insert subtitles upon request.
