|Availability:||This training is available on-demand|
Duration: 70 mins.
|Summary:||Concise Writing is the key to subtitling translation as well as to advertising, journalism, radio, Internet localization and many other types of specialized writing and translation.|
For subtitling, semiolinguistic Concision Tools are used to spare the subtitle from what is already conveyed by the audio/visual movie environment. How to focus on the essential message, simplify, shorten it, and make it more dense, yet, give it a more persuasive, vivid and striking form is the challenge. This course will go deeper into the discovery of the proven Ph-D Paul Memmi's Linguistic Concision Toolbox © for concise writing.

Translators and content writers working in subtitling, advertising, journalism, radio, localization and many other types of specialized writing and translation.
Provide students with specific tools and techniques to simplify, shorten, and make translated messages more dense, yet, keep the vivid and striking form of the source text.

|Bio: Paul Memmi has a passion for signs, signs we send to each other, and that some make into great works of art or great thoughts.|
This passion led him to become a translator - a messenger as well as an interpreter - and to teach his profession at university.
It has also made him write for cinema and create fine art works. His collages illustrate his website.
If the subtitled image aims to be perceived as a ready-made expression, one can also be fascinated by its aesthetic as a collage, that is, according to Eisenstein, cinema itself.
