This volume aims to take the pulse of the changes taking place in the
thriving field of Audiovisual Translation and to offer new insights into
both theoretical and practical issues. Academics and practitioners of
proven international reputation are given voice in three distinctive
sections pivoting around the main areas of subtitling and dubbing, media
accessibility (subtitling for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and audio
description), and didactic applications of AVT. Many countries, languages,
transfer modes, audiences and genres are considered in order to provide the

translators and language professionals who want to expand their sphere of
