【Course Objectives】

We will develop understanding of the characteristics and limitations of subtitle translation, which is the central component in audiovisual translation. Via translation practice we will develop skills for producing subtitles that correspond to various situations. Also, while acquiring theoretical knowledge through the study of areas such as translation strategies and subtitling research trends, we will gain understanding of new movements in subtitling that are occurring in line with the progress of information technology. Through this knowledge and understanding we will consider the connection between subtitle translation theory and practice.

【Course Contents】

In this class, we will give an outline of subtitle translation theory and create Japanese subtitles for English movies. Firstly, having provided an overview of audiovisual translation and subtitle translation, as preparation for translating we will shed light on the rules and the process of creating subtitle translations. Next, after presenting the specific features of subtitle translation, we will gradually translate part of a movie, which forms our translation assignment, from the base translation into the subtitle translation. Also, we will discuss the classification of translation strategies and their use, along with describing ways of theoretically explaining one’s own translations. Furthermore, we will cover subtitles with different content and style from movie subtitles. Also, we will discuss these new subtitle formats from technology and accessibility related points of view. In addition, we will cover English subtitles that are added to Japanese movies and consider characteristic traits that are specific to them.
