    Since sound effects are an important part of the movies...I would like to know how you say them in foreign countries.

    All help will be appreciated,

    In Greek:
    «Ηχητικά εφέ»
    içiti'ka e'fe (pl. n.)
    sound effects

    «Eφέ» (e'fe, sing., pl., n.), loanword from the French-->effet

    [ç] is a voiceless palatal fricative

    There is a Finnish neologism for 'efekti', tehoste¹. Therefore, äänitehosteet is equally acceptable. However, it may feel a bit old-fashioned and bookish.

    ____________________________________
    ¹ tehoste < tehostaa + -e* < teho + -stA

    teho = effect, action; capacity; (effective) power
    tehostaa = instr. to provide with teho
    tehoste
    = a thing you can provide teho with

    Serbian:

    zvučni efekti (zvučni=adjective corresponding to zvuk=sound)

    I could imagine also someone saying "saund efekti".

    Maybe it's possible to say саунд ефекти (saund efekti).
