Organisation profile

TransMedia Catalonia is an interdisciplinary research group created by Dr Pilar Orero at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). It has its origin in an international research group created in 2004 (TransMedia).

TransMedia Catalonia aims to research audiovisual translation (dubbing, subtitling, voice-over, etc.) and media accessibility (subtitling for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, respeaking, audio description, audio subtitling, sign language) in various genres, platforms and supports. After an initial period devoted to descriptive research, its focus is now on user testing and technological implementation. 

TransMedia Catalonia was recognised in 2005 as an emerging group by the Catalan government (SGR2005/230) and has been a consolidated research group since 2009 (2009SGR700, 2014SGR27, 2017SGR113). The group is linked to UAB's Department of Translation and Interpreting and East Asian Studies. TransMedia Catalonia manages LAB-TTAV (Laboratori de Tecnologies per a la Traducció Audiovisual), which offers eye-tracking and consultancy services in media accessibility.
