July 21, 2020

Is a specialization in audiovisual translation for you?

Attend this 60-minute webinar for a bird’s-eye view of audiovisual translation (AVT) as a distinct, “always something new” field in translation. Presenter Ana Salotti will introduce, compare, and show the most essential characteristics of AVT modalities, such as subtitling, dubbing (voice-over and lip sync), subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing (SDH), and audio description for the blind and partially sighted.

This is an introductory webinar designed for those who are interested in or just beginning to work in audiovisual translation.

What Will This Webinar Cover?

  • Scope of audiovisual translation as a unique specialization.
  • Major modalities of audiovisual translation with practical examples.
  • Basic limitations and challenges of working in the specialty.
