The main idea of my presentation consists in an intermedial reframing, that is, in looking closely at translation through the lens of theatre. In the theoretical introduction, I will present key moments of theatre work as a new frame for translation processes.
All these techniques and characteristics permit to understand the process of rereading and rewriting, which is proper to the work of translation, as well as the cultural and social framing in translation in a different way by making use of an intermedial reflection. After this theoretical exchange between the two fields, I would like to present a short casy study by reflecting on the perspective of the translator and dramaturge Vera San Payo de Lemos, who works at Teatro Aberto in Lisbon, and who shared her insights with me in a set of conversations both on the process of translation and on staging a play.
Her perspective allows us to understand the various roles that translators may have at different stages of the work process.

They deal not only with the original but with all its transformations in the process of rehearsal, on an intermedial but also on an intercultural level. Finally, I would like to raise the question of agency in a collective process of creation, in which translators need to re-negotiate their place. A Streetcar Named Desire : An analysis of six different versions. Each edition has taken a different approach to the text — including even the two French editions, which were translated by the same person.
This allows us to observe some of the challenges inherent in the translation process and the strategies used by the different translators to overcome them. In the context of the play, the monologue lays bare much of the backstory of the main character, Blanche DuBois, whilst revealing her rapidly decaying mental health.

This makes it a crucial moment of the play. Hence, it is an ever-relevant play. Censoring sexuality: The filtered reception of sexual contents in Portuguese cinemas during the dictatorship — The case of Helga Erich F. Bender, Film distributors were aware of the decrees, laws and ideology underpinning the censorship processes and would not even try to import films of an overt erotic nature.
Scenes displaying kisses or nudity were cut out before a foreign film would enter the Portuguese cinemas. Cuts, omitted subtitles and manipulation of the text were the three main measures of censoring films.

As the audiovisual industry seeks to keep pace with technological advancement, the reorganization of processes and the retraining of professionals are on the agenda. Hopefully, this will reinforce the field of study, tackle its specific issues and compile information that will fuel other studies. This paper will analyse and compare two English translations of the Quran. These translations were chosen largely due to the fact that the first was done by a non-Muslim Orientalist while the second was done by a Muslim translator.
Attention will also be given to the reception of the two versions and the criticism surrounding them. In formal discourse, in formal societies? The portrayal of Popes in the national press. The speeches delivered by the Popes in the United Nations General Assembly were broadly reported, especially in countries sharing the Catholic religious tradition, such as Portugal.
We will focus on the first articles published about all five official papal visits in both newspapers. Contracts are mostly written in legalese, an excessively complicated form of writing which makes them hard for lay people to understand. An increase in the demand for more accessible language in legal documents has led to the creation of Comic Contracts, which convey the contents of a contract through the use of pictorial forms.
With their simplification of reality and ability to focus on the important elements of the message, comics are considered an effective medium of technical communication. The main objectives of this project are the translation of excerpts from an English tenancy agreement into plain Portuguese, and their subsequent adaptation to the comic format.
This translation can be considered both interlingual and intersemiotic, with the target text being a multimodal text. This means that a wide range of variables must be taken into account, such as the relationship between text and image, as well as localization of the content to make sure that it is appropriate to the target culture and conveys the intended message.
Some languages can, perhaps, convey certain sentiments in a more emphatic way than others. For example, the English language is extremely good at conveying feelings of anger, passion and rage while Portuguese is better at conveying feelings of love, nostalgia and tenderness. It is with this in mind that we will make our stand. God of War is a video game in which the main character is driven by feelings of anger, vengeance and rage, but can we safely say that the Portuguese subtitles perfectly convey the message that the game is trying to transmit?
In order to explore this further, the subtitles, in English and in Portuguese, of two cut scenes will be analysed in order to understand the differences that exist between the English and Portuguese subtitles, and if these affect the way in which the message and feeling of the game is presented to the player.
Since the emergence of the book market and its autonomisation from state control in the mid-nineteenth century, publishers have acted as major gatekeepers in regulating access to literary works, including translations, and ultimately in constructing entire literary fields. Such translations have played an important role in helping to consecrate particular authors in specific contexts Casanova ; Sapiro and to form particular readerships.
This logic stems from a notion of the translator as an individual who acts alone and is solely responsible for all the decisions made in producing a translation, without the pressure of professional constraints or the intervention of other agents. It was only quite recently, however, following the growing endorsement of sociologically-oriented theories and concepts in Translation Studies, that scholars began to address the institutional role played by publishing houses and to acknowledge the diversity of agents involved in the editorial process, including editors, proofreaders, reviewers, authors, and translators themselves working individually or collectively.

This paper reviews the recent literature on the topic, made up of studies which, while premised on various theoretical, conceptual, and methodological perspectives, converge in recognising the collaborative and conflictive dynamics of publishing as well as the effects of such dynamics on both the translation process and product.
Although in recent years there has been an increasing interest in translation process research, to the best of our knowledge there is no research into the effect of expectations of revisers and readers on the translation process. The observed process, as well as the decision-making of professional translators, is, however, based on their beliefs about what the community expects from their work. It is relevant not only to understand i what translators believe revisers and readers expect of them, but also ii to compare those beliefs with the actual expectations of revisers and readers.
There is still a lack of understanding about how translators translate, how translators think they should translate, and what translators believe to be the expectations of others. It zooms in on preferences regarding source and target orientation in translation, comparing both the practice and beliefs of 60 agents with different roles and levels of experience: novice translators, experienced translators, revisers and health professionals representing the intended audience of the target text.
The findings contribute to creating a fuller picture of the relationship between translators, revisers and readers and enable us to better understand the practices in place in professional biomedical translation. Over the last few years, the meanings of translation and interpreting have expanded to embrace practices that go beyond their traditional definitions as merely linguistic transfers. These new approaches leave behind the view of translators and interpreters as simple bridges between cultures in order to explore the complexities of their duty, connecting with other areas of study and moving outwards Bassnett, ; Bassnett and Johnston, forthcoming.
