According to Mayoral, shortly “even general translators will have to be able to use translation systems like subtitling, dubbing or voice-over and adjustment techniques.”
According to Mayoral, audiovisual tranlators cannot limit their activity to an only system but must be able to work with every kind of system (subtitling, dubbing and voice-over) since more and more products combine them and even use them simultaneously. Thus, according to the author: “Products to be translated change and update, professionals must have new abilities and every translator (student or professional) will have to combine new skills: in our opinion and in the near future, computing, publicity and audiovisual.”
In his work, Mayoral studies the adjustment in audiovisual translation from a point the view of the methods and considers the reduction, expansion and omission of the original as different aspects of the same technique: length alteration / length of the original dialogues. Likewise, the UGR [http://www.ugr.es] Professor describes different tools at the audiovisual translator´s disposal to alterate and methods to lessen its negative effects too. On the other hand, the study describes the different speeds which can serve the translator as a reference for the adjustment: the spectator´s mental reading and actors´ performance speeds, which usually do not match with those of the translator.
In Professor Mayoral´s words, “these translation techniques or methods become valuable in the case of audiovisual translation, since one of the distinctive elements of the audiovisual message is the conjunction of different signals which must be synchronized or adjusted to a greater or lesser extent; that is, its emission must be comprised within certain temporal, space or both limits”.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
