'Voice' in subtitling: findings on individuality in subtitling from english to swedish
Linköping University, Department of Culture and Communication, Language and Literature. Linköping University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
2016 (English)In: Norm-focused and culture-related inquiries in translation research: selected papers of the CETRA Research Summer School 2014 / [ed] Justyna Giczela-Pastwa, Uchenna Oyali, Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang GmbH , 2016, p. 101-118Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to see if and how an individual subtitler can bring his/her unique ‘voice’ into the timecoded subtitles. Drawing on earlier studies primarily on translation norms and on ‘voice in translation’, the results focus on technical, linguistic and polysemiotic traits of the subtitling product as an expression of ‘voice’. The paper presents the following definition of ‘voice’: the consistent traits as regards linguistic features, time-coding and punctuation – with necessary consideration given to the polysemiotic aspects of the whole film text – that can be analyzed in a given subtitler’s subtitling output, and which cannot be explained by technical/linguistic norms, and/or other people’s traceable influence. The study finds that through these traits, it is indeed possible to trace a subtitler’s ‘voice’.
