The chapters in this volume examine translation practices and experiences in various countries, highlighting how AVT plays a crucial role in shaping debates about languages and cultures in a world increasingly dependent on audiovisual media. Through analysing materials which have been dubbed and subtitled like Bridget Jones’s Diary, Forrest Gump, The Simpsons or South Park, the authors raise awareness of current issues in the study of AVT and offer new insights on this complex and vibrant area of the translation discipline.

SPANISH PICTURE DICTIONARY Vol.1: English to Spanish THIS EDITION: The dual-language text has been arranged for quick and easy cross-referencing. The text can be used on its own. However, the content is ideal for reinforcing the basics, and as a precursor to studying grammar or more advanced bilingual editions. Volume 1 in this series provides the language learner with a broad exposure to basic words and concepts, using visual queues to support understanding and retention. This picture dictionary takes the unconventional approach of including adjectives, verbs, adverbs and prepositions, not just nouns. In doing so, visual queues become a way to progress much deeper into the foreign language. Once a student has studied the basics, the Picture Dictionary can be a helpful language building resource. The suggestion is to progress through the dictionary as you would a normal book, rather than try and use it as a reference text. The dictionary provides the basis for a language learner to make an easy and fruitful transition to more advanced bilingual texts. If audio is an important component of your interest in languages, electronic devices that support quality text-to-speech (TTS) will likely be appealing. With a library card, TTS technology (in a device that supports the relevant content), and resources from 2Language Books (as digital content), an entire language learning system is available for not much more than a cup of coffee! There is no substantial financial outlay to get you started. Furthermore, there are no additional ongoing fees (and updates), and there are no expiry dates on 'premium' content and resources.
