Lina Abraitienė, who is an alumna of the 2017 CETRA Research Summer School in Translation Studies, and her colleagues of Kaunas Faculty at Vilnius University are pleased to invite you to the 8th International Conference on Dialect translation in multimedia (MultiMeDialecTranslation 8) which will be held on 7-9 May 2020 at the Institute of Language, Literature and Translation Studies of Vilnius University.
MultiMeDialecTranslation 8 is an interdisciplinary conference, operating at the interface of linguistics, media, communication, and translation studies. It is aimed at colleagues from both academic research and teaching as well as practitioners of translation. Founded in 2002 as a conference for investigating the interlingual translation of dialects in “multimedia” with film subtitling as a typical example, the conference has expanded its range of topics to other polysemiotic configurations (e.g. theatre, opera, comic) as well as to other non-standard varieties and to intralingual translation.
This year, we will also discuss the rendering of language varieties with regard to media accessibility, i.e. audio description and subtitles for deaf and hard of hearing as well as to video game localization.
