Table of contents
The book is based on the author’s doctoral dissertation. It presents a methodology for the investigation of norms based on the polysystem approach to translation, and applies this methodology to the investigation of the choice between subtitling and revoicing children’s TV films in Greece. The proposed methodology, Karamitroglou claims, can be useful for the study of norms in other modes of written translation as well.
