Meeting Description: The Department of Language and Communication at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense and the Centre for Communication, Culture and Society cordially invite you to the 7th Conference “MultiMeDialecTranslation - Dialect translation in multimedia”. The conference will be held 17 - 20 May 2017 at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense.

MultiMeDialecTranslation 7 is an interdisciplinary conference, operating at the interface of linguistics, media studies, communication studies, and translatology. It is aimed at both colleagues from academic research and teaching as well as practitioners of translation.

Founded in 2002 as a conference for investigating the interlingual translation of dialects in “multimedia” with film subtitling as a typical example, the conference has expanded its range of topics to other polysemiotic configurations (e.g. theatre, opera, comic) as well as to other non-standard varieties and to intralingual translation.

This year, we will also discuss laymen subtitling and dubbing of dialects on the internet (e.g. in YouTube videos) and perspectives of polysemiotic translation of non-standard varieties for foreign language teaching.

Henrik Gottlieb, University of Copenhagen
