Aims/Description: This module aims to introduce students to the main theories of screen translation and to give them the opportunity to apply them in practical subtitling tasks. By the end of the module we expect that students will be able to: i) Understand the constraints of screen translation; ii) Relate theory to practice in practical subtitling projects using professional subtitling software; and iii) Use subtitling software to produce subtitles to appropriate standards for a subtitling project.
