Hello there, I'm doing my thesis on what happens when american comedy series are subtitled and then transmited here in mexico, but I still can't find something to "fix".

I've just found these problems:

1. US humor does not make most mexican laugh.
2. Omition of context because of the lack of time and space.
3. Translating most of a scene in a literal way.

Can someone help me found some more?

Oh! and does anyone have more info on subtitling? any e-books or articles related?

THANK YOU !!
