Przekładaniec 28: Audiodeskrypcja focuses specifically on audio description, bringing together its theorists, practitioners (authors/translators) and recipients. Across eleven papers, AD is discussed in a number of different contexts, from classroom to cinema. The issue presents individual as well as collaborative, and qualitative and well as quantitative research: case studies, project presentations, and theoretical discussions. Together they constitute an insightful presentation of audio description as a specific kind of audiovisual/intermedial/intersemiotic translation.
Apart from papers on audio description, this issue features a Varia section with a discussion of three Polish translations of Alice in Wonderland by the same translator/adaptor, and a Reviews section with papers discussing two recent books on the translation of Szymborska and Dostoevsky, respectively.
