TransMedia Catalonia

TransMedia Catalonia és un grup de recerca de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) que aborda l’estudi de la traducció audiovisual (doblatge, subtitulació, veus superposades, etc.) i l’accessibilitat als mitjans (subtitulació per a sords, reparlat, audiodescripció, audiosubtitulació, llengua de signes) en diferents gèneres, plataformes i suports. Després d’un període inicial dedicat a la recerca descriptiva, ara se centra principalment en la investigació empírica i de caràcter tecnològic, cosa que és possible gràcies a un grup d’investigadors interdisciplinari.

El 2005 el govern català va reconèixer TransMedia Catalonia com a grup emergent (SGR2005/230), i des de 2009 és un grup de recerca consolidat (2009SGR700, 2014SGR27, 2017SGR113, 2021SGR00077) vinculat al Departament de Traducció i Interpretació i Estudis d’Àsia Oriental de la UAB. El grup dirigeix el Laboratori de Tecnologies Aplicades a la Traducció Audiovisual, que ofereix serveis d’eye-tracking i mesures de variables electrofisiològiques.
