Non-professional Interpreting and Translation in the Media


Rachele Antonini and Chiara Bucaria

Non-professional Interpreting and Translation (NPIT) is a recent discipline. Books and volumes on this subject that combine all the different fields are extremely uncommon and authoritative reference material is scarce and mostly scattered through disparate specialized journals. There are many areas and aspects of NPIT in the media that to date have been under researched or utterly neglected. The aim of this volume is therefore to fill an important gap in the academic market and to provide an overview of diverse aspects of non-professional interpreting and translation in the media. The volume consists of a collection of essays by eminent international scholars and researchers from the field of Translation and Interpreting Studies.

Non-professional subtitling in close-up: A study of interjections and discourse markers1

1. Introduction

Fansubbing is an increasingly popular phenomenon which is deeply affecting the whole process of television consumption. Instant accessibility of audiovisual material over the Internet has caused the emergence of a new generation of viewers who use the Web to access the original version of their favourite TV show and resort to amateur subtitles to overcome the language barrier. Often dissatisfied with current dubbing practices and given the number of televised programmes that are made readily available over the Internet by ever-growing fan communities, viewers are becoming increasingly aware of the complexity and specificity of television shows and demand higher quality standards of translations. New target groups and subgroups within subtitling audiences, who call for a radical revision of established translation practices, are hence emerging (Gambier 2003 and O’Hagan 2009).
