Translation and Multimodality: Beyond Words is one of the first books
to explore how translation needs to be redefined and reconfigured in
contexts where multiple modes of communication, such as writing, images,
gesture, and music, occur simultaneously. Bringing together
world-leading experts in translation theory and multimodality, each
chapter explores important interconnections between these related, yet
distinct, disciplines.

As communication becomes ever more multimodal, the need to consider
translation in multimodal contexts is increasingly vital. The various
forms of meaning-making that have become prominent in the twenty-first
century are already destabilising certain time-honoured
translation-theoretic paradigms, causing old definitions and assumptions
to appear inadequate. This ground-breaking volume explores these
important issues in relation to multimodal translation with examples
from literature, dance, music, TV, film, and the visual arts.

Encouraging a greater convergence between these two significant
disciplines, this is an essential text for advanced students and
researchers in Translation Studies, Linguistics and Communication
