Reviews

“This handbook gives a very comprehensive overview of a broad range of issues in audiovisual translation and media accessibility. The readers have here an updated collection of papers about different practices and a research field which remains perhaps too Eurocentric but challenges Translation Studies.” (Yves Gambier, Professor Emeritus, University of Turku, Finland)

“This book revisits some interesting topics on the research and training of audiovisual translation and media accessibility. The authors are well known scholars in the field.” (Pilar Orero, Professor, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain)

“This is an outstanding, genuinely interesting and carefully edited collection of articles. After providing insight into some of the core theoretical frameworks that place AVT and Media Accessibility (MA) within and even beyond the domain of Translation Studies, it explores the classic and newer AVT/MA modes, and current, often technology-based, research methods and focus areas, as well as research themes that reach well beyond the remit of AVT as it was traditionally defined. This is the defining characteristic of all its chapters: while identifying current trends in practice and research, it takes the study of Audiovisual Translation and Media Accessibility into the future.”(Aline Remael, Professor, University of Antwerp, Belgium)
