While complementing other volumes in the BTL series in its exploration of the state of the art of translator training, this collection of essays is solely focused on audiovisual translation, one of the most complex and dynamic areas of the translation discipline. The book offers an easily accessible yet comprehensive introduction to the fascinating subject of translating films, video games and other audiovisual material. Offering a balance between theory and practice, the main aim of this volume is to provide a wealth of teaching and learning ideas in areas such as subtitling, dubbing, and voice-over without forgetting the newer fields of subtitling for the deaf and audio description for the blind. The Didactics of Audiovisual Translation comes with an accompanying CD-Rom, highlighting its fundamentally interactive approach, and the activities proposed can be adapted to different learning environments and used with different language combinations.

“Certainly, this book should be read. Its numerous lists of suggested activities, its exercises, and its active and creative approach should ensure it gains a large readership.”
“On the whole, The Didactics of Audiovisual Translation is a highly recommendable and practical book that successfully fills a gap by tackling issues that need some serious and focused attention. It is about time that publications on AVT quit being so scattered, and this must-read book shows us the way to do it.”
