Lorenaamendez
Lorenaamendez Hello, my name is Lorena.


The purpose of my end-of-degree project was to determine how subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing (SDH) is developed in multilingual contexts. My study was divided into two parts. Firstly, a compilation of the current studies and regulations was presented, as well as an exposition of the current situation of the SDH in multilingual contexts both in Europe and in Spain. In addition, some strategies proposed by the experts were presented and exemplified. Secondly, the short film Vale was chosen as a case study since it contains diverse difficulties that the SDH poses in multilingual contexts. A SDH proposal of Vale was developed and presented, as well as its challenges analyzed on the basis of the strategies adopted.

I had just finished my degree but I would love to learn from you and contribute if I can. Thank you and congratulations for the project.

LorenaHurtado-Malillos Hello, my name is Lorena. First of all, just as Irene did, I would like to congratulate you for the project.

I am doing my thesis in the PhD program UVa-UA Traductología, traducción profesional y audiovisual. My research topic is multilingual films in AVT. I particularly focus on those cases in which L1 and L3 are present in the same scene and I study their diverse translation solutions. As well, I am also interested in accessible translation and the treatment of multilingualism in SDH.

The tables of operations for L1 and L3 segments proposed in Corrius and Zabalbeascoa (2011) are being of great help for my analysis and I would like to apply them to my study. This platform could be a good medium to keep in touch and discuss some doubts.
Thanks and regards.

Anastasia Hello, my name is Anastasia and my project deals with the use of audiovisual translation to foster communicative competence in a foreign language. I'm creating a corpus of material to use in the FL classroom and some of the movies I found witness multilingualism, which can be a challenging feature of an AVT to translate, especially for students.

MPLH Hello, my name is María, dealing mainly with the reproduction of intersectional stereotypes (race & gender) in audiovisual products. The way multilingualism is represented, also if it's even present or not, constitutes a pivotal point (and challenge) in my research. Thank you for your research and congrats to the heads!!!
