Press Release Summary = showcases Spanish voice over talents, Castilian
and Latin American, during their Worldly Voices Week on the VOX Daily Voice Actors

Press Release Body = Toronto, Canada (Express Press Release) July 16 - It\'s no
secret that the Spanish market is booming in the United States, particularly the
Hispanic market. After several generations of people from Latin America and South
America establishing roots as American citizens in the southern states and the west
coast of the US predominantly, the time has come for society to recognize the rich
contributions, cultural and otherwise, that the Spanish speaking population of North
America has introduced, including the beautiful Romance language of Spanish.

While the Spanish language enjoys a major presence on the world stage, people hiring
voice talents should be aware of two significantly different dialects, the
continental European Spanish which comes from Spain (Castilian or Castellano) and
the familiar Latin American Spanish that North Americans are accustomed to that
resonates of soft C\'s that sound like S\'s and other differentiators presented
through popular songs similar to Feliz Navidad.

The Spanish spoken in the US is by most accounts the most universally spoken because
of its effortless glides and genteel delivery not to mention the exposure it has
enjoyed in the Americas. This is the gentle Spanish of Dora the Explorer, Sesame
Street, soap operas from Mexico, and the crooning of singers such as Ricky Martin,
Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.

Spanish voice over talent Simone Fojgiel, a native of Uruguay now living in the
United States, says, "Just consider that Spanish is spoken by almost 400 million
people natively. It is the fourth most spoken language by total number of speakers,
including native and non-native Spanish speakers, which in total is approximately
500 million. The expansion of Spanish is frankly impressive. It is also the second
most widely spoken language in the US."

According to Simone, a native speaker of Latin American Spanish, the Spanish
language is now one of the three most sought after languages in the voice over
marketplace, propelled in part by recent studies in the United States indicating
that the number of Spanish-dominant and bilingual Hispanics in America will increase
by 45% over the next 20 years.

One of the best ways to find a native speaker of Spanish is to conduct a search
online or post a job using the web service, home to over 15,000 voice
over talents, hundreds of which, both male and female, are native speakers of
Spanish located around the world including talent from Spain, Colombia, Uruguay,
Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, the United States and Canada.
