Audiovisual Translation : Theories, Methods and Issues
Audiovisual translation is the fastest growing strand within translation studies.

In this clear, user-friendly textbook, Luis Perez-Gonzalez introduces and explores the field, presenting and critiquing key concepts, research models and methodological approaches.
