Title: New Insights into Audiovisual Translation and Media Accessibility

Series Title: Approaches to Translation Studies 33

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

reader with a wide overview of the current state of the art in the field.

This volume will be of interest not only for researchers, teachers and
students in linguistics, translation and film studies, but also to
translators and language professionals who want to expand their sphere of
