This volume provides an overview of localisation practices and trends and reveals its significance in the audiovisual sector. Contributors examine translation practices including dubbing, subtitling and voice-over of finished, ‘canned’ material; the internationalisation and localisation of video games; regional adaptations of entertinment television formats and news;and licensed as well as unlicensedfilm remakes across borders. This book supports cross-border dialogue of academics and practitioners and highlights commonalities and differences between countries and between entertainment industries. As such it provides a new frame of reference for planning, studying and understanding the international flow of media across borders, and the intricacies, challenges and implications of content localisation.
