TransMedia is a research group formed in London in 2004 during the International Audiovisual Translation Conference In So Many Words.

TransMedia’s mission is simple: to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing between academia and industry in the audiovisual translation and accessibility sectors. We aim to foster a culture of collaboration, innovation, and shared research and development to help drive the industry forward.

TransMedia’s members are academics and professionals active in the diverse areas of AVT. They share a common interest in multidisciplinary translation research. Their work crosses linguistic borders, embracing a wide range of language combinations, including minoritised languages, and the different aspects of accessibility and inclusion.

With members from several countries, specialising in different AVT modalities and language needs, the TransMedia group’s varied professional background makes them adept at combining academic research methodologies and hands-on translation experience, enhancing opportunities for ongoing comparative research into a variety of practices.
