More info about Eastern European accents
Eastern Europe - exactly where is it? There is no exact boundary to show what land it encompasses and the term is used to describe a geo-political and cultural area in different ways, depending on who you speak to and the classification they're using.
In a general sense Eastern Europe describes the countries East of Germany, many of which were formerly communist states post World War II. However the difference can be measured much further back, with the Eastern and Western versions of Christianity lasting from the 11th Century until today.
This made it a challenge to classify the 'Eastern European accent' here at Voquent. So we've chosen 21 countries / regions to represent Eastern European accents:
Abkhaz, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Nagorno-Karabakh, Poland, Pridnestrovia, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine.
Anyone natively from one of the above countries or regions, speaking in English will be classified as having an Eastern European accent. For some of these regions we've also included a Euro-Neutral equivalent, which is an accent many professional voice actors, broadcasters and presenters adopt for work on TV and Radio.
However you classify it, Eastern Europe is a huge area with a vast population, with political, religious and cultural differences.
Choosing a voice over in English, speaking with an Eastern European accent is important for many types of business communications or for entertainment across the world. In the UK there is a huge population of immigrant Eastern Europeans and we've frequently produced training content and presentations with native Eastern European voice actors for health & safety briefings, public announcements and internal corporate videos.
We've also cast voice actors with Eastern European accents for video game characters, animations and audio tours for museums.
The character Dracula is arguably the most famous example of a literary character with an Eastern European accent.
Here is a photo of Bran Castle in Romania, thought to be the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's - Dracula's Castle. Yikes!
