Who Would Benefit? Freelance translators, undergraduate and postgraduate translation students
Course Objectives By the end of the day you will be conversant with the main principles that regulate voice-over and will have had the opportunity to face the most frequent challenges encountered by voice-over translators.
Course Content The course will start with an introduction to voice-over as an audiovisual transfer mode which is gaining momentum in the international arena. Although reference to fictional genres will be made, the workshop will focus on non-fiction (documentaries, interviews, corporate videos, etc.).

After describing voice-over practice in Europe, the main features of this transfer mode as well as the various workflows will be summarised. Special attention will be paid to synchronisation issues and the language rewording that it often entails.

Participants will then be asked to translate and discuss various short clips that present different challenges, and specific software will be used to simulate voice-over. A list of relevant bibliographical references and resources will be given to all the participants.

Certificate You will receive a certificate of attendance.
