The late twentieth-century transition from a paper-oriented to a media-oriented society has triggered the emergence of audiovisual translation as the most dynamic and fastest developing trend within Translation Studies. The growing interest in this area indicates that this discipline is going to set the agenda for the theory, research, training and practice of translation in the twenty-first century. This remains a largely underdeveloped field and much needs to be done to put screen translation, multimedia Translation or the wider implications of audiovisual translation on a par with other fields within Translation Studies. In this light, this collection of essays reflects not only the ‘state of the art’ in the research and teaching of audiovisual translation, but also the professionals’ experiences. The contributions cover issues ranging from reflections on professional activities, to theory, the impact of ideology on audiovisual translation, and the practices of teaching and researching this challenging discipline.
