Title: Voice-over Translation
Subtitle: An Overview
Edited By: Eliana Franco
Anna Matamala
Pilar Orero
Description:

This book presents the first study of voice-over from a wide approach,
including not only academic issues but also a description of the practice
of voice-over around the globe. The authors define the concept of
voice-over in Film Studies and Translation Studies and clarify the
relationship between voice-over and other audiovisual transfer modes. They
also describe the translation process in voice-over both for production and
postproduction, for fiction and non-fiction.
The book also features course models on voice-over which can be used as a
source of inspiration by trainers willing to include this transfer mode in
their courses. A global survey on voice-over in which both practitioners
and academics express their opinions and a commented bibliography on
voice-over complete this study. Each chapter includes exercises which both
lecturers and students can find useful.

Contents: Voice-over from Film Studies to Translation Studies - Voice-over
