Reviews

"Delving into topics of paramount importance in audiovisual translation such as quality, audiences and professional practices, this collective volume offers a stimulating overview of the global audiovisual landscape. Through contributions investigating various modes, contexts and genres, the volume provides an invaluable insight into under-researched issues and realities, showing how technology, commercial aspects and audience preferences, among other factors, are noticeably changing the current landscape."

-Professor Frederic Chaume, Universitat Jaume I, Spain

"This volume contains state-of-the art research on audiovisual translation and accessibility. It displays many fresh views from both new and established scholars in the field and demonstrates the importance of looking at these areas from a global perspective, as it investigates quality, audience design and professional practices, and shows the importance of context in translation studies."

-Dr Jan Pedersen, Stockholm University, Sweden
