A Relevance-Theoretic Approach to Decision-Making in Subtitling


This book aims to investigate the process of decision-making in subtitling of feature films and entertainment series. The author uses Relevance Theory (Sperber and Wilson,1986) to argue that the technical, linguistic and translational constraints at work in subtitling result in a curtailed target text, and illustrates this argument by invoking examples drawn from the English-Polish subtitles of films and television series available through the subscription service Netflix. After introducing the current state of research on audiovisual translation within and outside the framework of translation studies, he presents the core concepts underpinning Relevance Theory and explains how it can be used to construct a model of the process of subtitling. This book will be of interest to students and scholars working in the fields of translation studies, audiovisual translation studies, and communication studies.

?ukasz Bogucki is Full Professor and Head of the Institute of English Studies and Department of Translation Studies and Language Pedagogy at the University of ?ód?, Poland. He has been involved in researching and teaching translation since 1993 and audiovisual translation since 2001, making him one of the pioneers of this dynamic sub-discipline within Translation Studies.
