This highly accessible introduction to translation theory, written by a leading author in the field, uses the genre of film to bring the main themes in translation to life. Through analyzing films as diverse as the Marx Brothers’ A Night at the Opera, The Star Wars Trilogies and Lost in Translation, the reader is encouraged to think about both issues and problems of translation as they are played out on the screen and issues of filmic representation through examining the translation dimension of specific films. In highlighting how translation has featured in both mainstream commercial and arthouse films over the years, Cronin shows how translation has been a concern of filmmakers dealing with questions of culture, identity, conflict and representation. This book is a lively and accessible text for translation theory courses and offers a new and largely unexplored approach to topics of identity and representation on screen. Translation Goes to the Movies will be of interest to those on translation studies and film studies courses.

Translation is living through a period of revolutionary upheaval. The effects of digital technology and the internet on translation are continuous, widespread and profound. From automatic online translation services to the rise of crowdsourced translation and the proliferation of translation Apps for smartphones, the translation revolution is everywhere. The implications for human languages, cultures and society of this revolution are radical and far-reaching. In the Information Age that is the Translation Age, new ways of talking and thinking about translation which take full account of the dramatic changes in the digital sphere are urgently required. Michael Cronin examines the role of translation with regard to the debates around emerging digital technologies and analyses their social, cultural and political consequences, guiding readers through the beginnings of translation's engagement with technology, and through to the key issues that exist today. With links to many areas of study, Translation in the Digital Age is a vital read for students of modern languages, translation studies, cultural studies and applied linguistics.

Fields of Vision: Critical Applications in Recent Philippine Cinema marks a departure from previous book-length approaches to Philippine film criticism in its scholarly application of modernist principles. Such issues as auteurism, structuralism, and spectatorship are pursued with the view of testing their usefulness for Philippine cinema, instead of simply dismissing them in the wake of more recent methodologies. The longer critical essays in the anthology tend to encompass Philippine film history, while the reviews concentrate on recent and still-available titles. Asserting that film has long been serving the function of a unifying national language, Fields of Vision is marked by appreciation for the popular, concern for issues of quality and acknowledgment of the far-reaching and continuing impact of film on the Philippine way of life.
