This session of the TRANSPARENT WINDOWS creative workshop series will present some of the problematics raised in the process of the audiovisual language transfer. The academic field of audiovisual translation is gaining wide attention as a result of an unprecedented growth in terms of product distribution and video consumption worldwide. In the whirlwind of the new reality, questions of (inter)cultural identities are intertwined in the production of high quality subtitles for different audiovisual texts (tv series, films, specialized documentaries), audiences (adults, children, hard of hearing) and media (television, cinema, festivals, OTT media services). In this session of the TRANSPARENT WINDOWS creative workshop, participants will be invited to work with certain audiovisual texts and provide their own translations in the target language as well as view certain audiovisual material as indicative examples of the challenges posed for the professionals during the subtitling process.
