This workshop aims to explore the different forms of media translation, highlighting their common features, problems and challenges. Participants will be introduced to the role and functions of translation in the various forms, modes and genres of media texts and will be familiarized with the principles, techniques and constraints of media translation.
The workshop will be divided into four parts, the first of which explores the various types, genres and modes of media texts, including audiovisual and social media. The second part will address the problems, difficulties and challenges commonly encountered by media translators and interpreters, highlighting the structure of news stories and the nature of trans-editing. The third and fourth parts will provide participants with an opportunity to analyse some media translations and reflect on the main theoretical issues discussed in the previous two parts.
