Translating Culture Specific References on Television: The Case of Dubbing - Routledge Advances in Translation and Interpreting Studies (Hardback)Irene Ranzato (author)
- We can order this
Translating Culture Specific References on Television provides a model for investigating the problems posed by culture specific references in translation, drawing on case studies that explore the translational norms of contemporary Italian dubbing practices. This monograph makes a distinctive contribution to the study of audiovisual translation and culture specific references in its focus on dubbing as opposed to subtitling, and on contemporary television series, rather than cinema. Irene Ranzato's research involves detailed analysis of three TV series dubbed into Italian, drawing on a corpus of 95 hours that includes nearly 3,000 CSR translations. Ranzato proposes a new taxonomy of strategies for the translation of CSRs and explores the sociocultural, pragmatic and ideological implications of audiovisual translation for the small screen.

She provides an impressive amount of examples, beautifully argued and presented, in a monograph which will engage AVT researchers and translation scholars alike." -Rocio Banos Pinero Centre for Translation Studies, University College London, UK
