Adapting Dialogue (short course)
Adapting Dialogue for Dubbing (ADD)
Dubbing is an important and increasingly widely used method for making entertainment content in one language accessible to international audiences. With the growth of global streaming video services, more content is being dubbed into more languages, with demand starting to outstrip supply. This short course will train you in dialogue adaptation, i.e. the production of an authentic target language dialogue script for use by voice actors and dubbing directors during the production of dubbed film versions. The aim of the course is to enhance the quality of dubbing through learning specific techniques of script analysis and practising adaptation skills.
Note that this course focuses on dubbing from English into other languages. The course is suitable for participants from all language backgrounds.
The complementary course in dubbing into English will be available on this site soon.
