The conference is directed at academics from various disciplines as well as translators and students who are interested in the translation of dialects in multimedia contexts.

The main topics to be covered at the conference include dubbing, subtitling films in dialect and linguistic varieties; theatre translation; cultural transfer processes in the characteristics of dialects; archaisms, regionalisms, varieties in the continuum between dialect and standard language; diglossia (national language and regional or local language; “official” and “non-official” language); the use of new technologies in the translation of dialect.
