Languages & the Media 2020

ABOUT

Throughout its 25-year long history, Languages & the Media, the Biennial International Conference on Audiovisual Language Transfer in the Media, has established itself as Europe’s leading conference in the AVT industry and is a vibrant hub for exchange, learning and discussion.

The conference brings together content creators and distributors, broadcasters, streaming services, language services providers, software and hardware developers, researchers, trainers, practitioners, and all those involved in the production, marketing and distribution of audiovisual content for information, entertainment or educational purposes through localisation and accessibility. The conference sessions and workshops examine the trends, innovations and technologies that are changing the globalised provision of audiovisual media and the ways we consume it across and within languages.

Languages & the Media is accompanied by an exhibition to showcase new technology, services and solutions to all relevant stakeholders in the audiovisual industry.

ABOUT

PATHS TO AN ACCESSIBLE WORLD
The audiovisual industry today is producing more material than ever and the impact it has on our daily lives has never been greater.
This increased production is thanks to technology, which has enabled the development of new cultural and trade links.

Audiovisual translations thus takes on a new depth, without which none of this would be possible.

Audiovisual translation is much more than subtitling, it also encompasses dubbing and accessibility modalities, in particular subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing, and audio description. The aim of this International Conference is to discuss all the paths of audiovisual translation that shape this reality.

Let us together explore the old and new paths and prepare for the future of audiovisual translation to the fullest extent, without fearing the unknown. Join us in Porto, Portugal, to break new ground in audiovisual translation, in what will be an historic event for AVT and its professionals!
