Wie stehen die Chancen, die große Liebe zu finden? Wie wahrscheinlich ist es, dass diese dann auch wirklich hält? Selbst in der Liebe lassen sich Muster und Algorithmen entdecken. Die junge Mathematikprofessorin Hannah Fry wirft einen prüfenden und humorvollen Blick auf die allgegenwärtigen Strukturen der Liebe und zeigt, wie wir dieses große Gefühl mit Hilfe der Mathematik besser verstehen können. +++ mit charmanten Farbillustrationen +++

In einem Zeitalter, in dem sich das Leben der Menschen immer mehr in der Medienwelt verliert, spielt das Fernsehen eine große Rolle. Mit einem Blick auf das heutige Programm wird ersichtlich, dass besonders Filme und Serien aus anderen Ländern, hauptsächlich den USA, stammen. Achtet man bei der Betrachtung dieser Programme auf die Dialoge, fallen zum Teil sehr merkwürdige Stellen auf, bei denen man sich fragt, wie es zu solchen Formulierungen kommen konnte. Aus diesem Grund befasst sich dieses Buch mit der Synchronisation von Filmen und Serien. Besonderes Ziel ist dabei, die Ursachen für diese Sonderheiten herauszufinden. Sind es einfach nur schlechte Übersetzungen? Woran erkennt man überhaupt schlechte Übersetzungen? Hatte der Übersetzer keine andere Wahl, als den Dialog so zu übersetzen? Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, werden die folgenden Punkte näher betrachtet: Welche Faktoren spielen bei der Synchronisation eine Rolle? Hätte es eine bessere Lösung geben können? Zu diesem Zweck wurde die amerikanische Sitcom Friends, die besonders im Originalton durch ihren saloppen und formlosen Humor besticht, und deren deutsche Synchronfassung als Untersuchungsgegenstand ausgewählt.

New Trends in Audiovisual Translation is an innovative and interdisciplinary collection of articles written by leading experts in the emerging field of audiovisual translation (AVT). In a highly accessible and engaging way, it introduces readers to some of the main linguistic and cultural challenges that translators encounter when translating films and other audiovisual productions. The chapters in this volume examine translation practices and experiences in various countries, highlighting how AVT plays a crucial role in shaping debates about languages and cultures in a world increasingly dependent on audiovisual media. Through analysing materials which have been dubbed and subtitled like Bridget Jones’s Diary, Forrest Gump, The Simpsons or South Park, the authors raise awareness of current issues in the study of AVT and offer new insights on this complex and vibrant area of the translation discipline.

"Trish Jensen is a one-woman laugh riot." -Sandra Hill, NY Times Bestselling Author "Trish Jensen is the undisputed queen of comedic romance." -Kathy Boswell, The Best Reviews Two feuding divorce lawyers. One infectious "love bug" virus. The symptoms are hard to resist . . . Paige Hart is blessed and cursed with a large, loving and. . .colorful Southern family. As the only lawyer in the clan, she can't say no when her cousin needs her help in a messy, no-holds-barred divorce. Tax attorney Paige squares off with Ross "the Snake" Bennett-one of the slickest divorce lawyers in the county. The case is going as well as an acrimonious, zinger-filled, wrangle of epic proportions can go until exposure to an infectious bug with an unusual side effect lands both lawyers in quarantine together. The doctor was blunt. "There's a slight chance that the two of you came into contact with infectious materials when you were transported in that ambulance." "A virus?" Paige squealed. "What virus?" Ross demanded. "The CDC believes it's a new strain of Tibetan Concupiscence Virus. Or TCV. The symptoms appear to be-somewhat unusual. Elevated heart rate, a warmth radiating under the skin, and heightened sexual awareness." "Oh . . . my . . . God," Paige said faintly. Ross crossed his arms. "I've never actually considered heightened sexual awareness a problem." "That's it!" Paige said, pointing at Ross accusingly. "That's what?" he and the doctor asked at the same time. "The reason I was-was-never mind," Paige said, feeling her cheeks heat up. Like she'd ever admit she'd been making silent, non-lawyerly observations about the snake. Hospital gowns weren't supposed to look that good. Or deliciously skimpy. Trish Jensen is the bestselling author of more than a dozen novels. Visit her at www.TrishJensen.com.
