Springtime is here and we’re happy to bring you our first Deep Focus issue of 2021.
As we come upon the one-year anniversary of the pandemic onset, things are finally looking up with vaccination expanding worldwide. We can actually dream of achieving herd immunity somewhere down the line.
What’s more, our industry has been slowly getting back on its feet and productions have started resuming, so our recently-impacted workload is also, gradually, picking up.
The International Women’s Day commemorates the fight for women’s rights. This Spring issue is dedicated to a long line of brave women in the long-time struggle and to women far and wide for
bringing nurturing, resilience, inspiration, love, tenacity, courage, and hope to the world since the beginning of time. May we all receive the equality, love, appreciation, and respect we deserve.
A shout-out to the overwhelming majority of women in our profession!
For our tenth issue, we gave our newsletter a bit of a makeover to make it more reader-friendly, so you will now find editions open with articles, followed by columns, interviews, reviews and, last but not least, our Division’s updates. All duly classified and labeled in the table of contents.
This new edition features engaging articles on subtitling tools, Arabic audio description, inclusion in AVT; a superb review of the smash hit Subtitling: Concepts and Practices by its very own authors; an interview with dubbing royalty from Spain; and our Live Events Coordinator with the highlights from our latest AVD’s Instagram Live events.
As always, we intend for this effort to bring fellow audiovisual translators together, to unite us, and to allow for knowledge exchange and transmission across our ever-growing translation field.
Happy Easter and hooray for women!
