Voice-over Translation

An Overview- Second Edition

Eliana P.C. Franco, Anna Matamala and Pilar Orero

This book presents the first study of voice-over from a wide approach, including not only academic issues but also a description of the practice of voice-over around the globe. The authors define the concept of voice-over in Film Studies and Translation Studies and clarify the relationship between voice-over and other audiovisual transfer modes. They also describe the translation process in voice-over both for production and postproduction, for fiction and non-fiction.
The book also features course models on voice-over which can be used as a source of inspiration by trainers willing to include this transfer mode in their courses. A global survey on voice-over in which both practitioners and academics express their opinions and a commented bibliography on voice-over complete this study. Each chapter includes exercises which both lecturers and students can find useful.

Printed in Switzerland To José, Xavi and Marcel Acknowledgements This book has been written in and across two different countries. These countries (Brazil and Catalonia) are different in both size and location. However, there is a link between such different realities which can be best described as an entrepreneurial dynamism in the quest for quality in re- search, teaching and collaboration. The book originates from an old friend- ship which came into existence through collaboration and from the expe- rience of study, research, travelling, teaching and many years of work translating.
