Taking Stock of Subtitling by Dr Jorge Díaz-Cintas

18/11/2014, 17:30 - 19:30


After discussing the semiotic relationship that exists between images and text in audiovisual productions, this talk aims at taking stock of the most significant technological and professional milestones in subtitling to date, whilst also delving into a prospective discussion of potential changes. It outlines the most important developments that have recently taken place in this field as a consequence of digitisation, the spread of internet, and the advent of the DVD, digital television and 3D.

Jorge Díaz-Cintas is the Director of the Centre for Translation Studies (CenTraS) at University College London. He is the author of numerous articles, special issues and books on audiovisual translation, including Audiovisual Translation: Subtitling (2007, with Aline Remael). He is the founding Chief Editor of New Trends in Translation Studies, Director of the European Association for Studies in Screen Translation (ESIST) and an expert board member of the EU LIND-Web initiative.
