Languages and the Media: Free Access - Priceless Rights?

Sixth International Conference and Exhibition on Language Transfer in Audiovisual Media

October 25th - 27th 2006, Hotel InterContinental, Berlin

The proliferation of distribution channels for news, information and entertainment (public and private broadcasting, digital TV and cinema, video-on-demand, pay TV, cable, satellite, DSL, DVD, internet, mobile content, download-to-own services, paid and free content, etc.) and constantly diversifying audiences are creating new and exciting scenarios for language transfer and applications. Translation takes on new meaning in this global distribution network and the cost-deadlines-quality equation is volatile. The 6th International Languages and the Media Conference and Exhibition will examine the various perspectives of translation for worldwide and local distribution and its impact on audiences, literacy and accessibility. It will take a bird's eye view of new opportunities for viewers and new tools for translators and language providers. It will examine the issues of free access and priceless rights.
