Title: New Trends in Audiovisual Translation
Edited By: Jorge Díaz Cintas
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691545
Series Title: Topics in Translation
Description:

New Trends in Audiovisual Translation is an innovative and
interdisciplinary collection of articles written by leading experts in the
emerging field of audiovisual translation (AVT). In a highly accessible and
engaging way, it introduces readers to some of the main linguistic and
cultural challenges that translators encounter when translating films and
other audiovisual productions. The chapters in this volume examine
translation practices and experiences in various countries, highlighting
how AVT plays a crucial role in shaping debates about languages and
cultures in a world increasingly dependent on audiovisual media. Through
analysing materials which have been dubbed and subtitled like Bridget
Jones’s Diary, Forrest Gump, The Simpsons or South Park, the authors raise
awareness of current issues in the study of AVT and offer new insights on
this complex and vibrant area of the translation discipline.
