Resum: Research on access services has been a central topic in the audiovisual translation field in recent years. Translation has been seen as a means of overcoming linguistic barriers, and audiovisual translation studies has been the field where many access services such as subtitling or audio description have been researched. Likewise, access services have been taught for many years now as audiovisual transfer modes in BA and MA courses. However, what has been lacking so far are large-scale training projects focusing on accessibility developed by audiovisual translation scholars in conjunction with industry partners and users. This is what the ongoing European projects ACT and ADLAB PRO are trying to achieve. This paper will present ACT and ADLAB PRO, two European projects funded under the Erasmus + scheme. Both projects share an interest in defining the skills needed to provide access services, and in creating materials to train professionals. ACT, led by Pilar Orero at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2015-2018), has the following aims: (i) profiling accessibility in Europe; (ii) defining the media accessibility manager profile; (iii) proposing a learning curriculum; (iv) developing, testing and implementing a MOOC; (v) searching certification strategies; (vi) developing guidelines on how to create an accessible coproduction; (vii) developing an accessibility policy, and (vii) proposing how to implement an accessibility quality label. ADLAB-PRO, led by Elisa Perego at Università di Trieste (2016-2019), has six main aims: (i) assessing current audio description training practices; (ii) defining the profile of the audio description professional; (iii) designing a course; (iv) developing course content; (v) evaluating and testing, and (vi) course accreditation and recognition. The presentation will offer an overview of both projects to the audience and will discuss the relationship of accessibilityrelated training proposals to standard translation curricula.
