MultiMeDialecTranslation 2007 - Third International Conference of Dialects
and Multimedia

The conference is directed at academics from various disciplines as well
as translators and students who are interested in the translation of
dialects in multimedia contexts. The conference will concentrate on a
complex, interdisciplinary subject area involving linguistics,
communication studies, film studies and translation studies as well as
other areas of cultural studies, sociology and other disciplines. The main
topics to be covered at the conference include dubbing, subtitling films
in dialect and linguistic varieties;  theatre translation; cultural
transfer processes in the characteristics of dialects;  archaisms,
regionalisms, varieties in the continuum between dialect and standard
language; diglossia (national language and regional or local language;
''official'' and ''non official'' language); the use of new technologies
in the translation of dialect.

To these areas the Host Committee welcomes proposals for 20-minute papers.
