During the annual ATA60 Conference, we commemorated our second year attending as one of the official divisions. Yet this time around, for the first time, with the fabulous addition of our very own Distinguished Speaker, Pablo Romero-Fresco, who is a researcher, Honorary Professor of Translation and Filmmaking; author on Respeaking, Subtitling, Accessible Filmmaking, and Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
He is tireless at disseminating AVT functionality and is fun to be around!
So we kicked off our conference participation with a lot of hype.
Therefore, this edition basically revolves around what went down during the conference: We included five of the AVD-related presentations that our speakers so graciously agreed to share with
us. Those of you who could not attend won’t feel you missed out as much when you get to read such interesting contributions on our pages. And those who did attend will be able to look through and take in the presentations you enjoyed in much more detail.
Additionally, as with every edition, we have amazing original content in the form of articles written by experienced peers in the field on remarkable and relevant topics to our profession.
As for our specialized newsletter, we are grateful for having launched four issues on 2019, in addition to our 2018 inaugural issue—all the time providing an insight to our field.
And we absolutely loved every minute of it.
