In this context, translation has become a powerful prism through which to think and practice social justice. Although largely intellectualized in relation to Western, liberal welfare states, social justice is also a performative and interpersonal prism of social change (Sen, 2009), with roots historically spread across cultures, traditions and territories, and with ramifications in contemporary forms of resistance, including struggles for the rights of humans but also of animals and nature. Thus, while social justice has traditionally been understood as the fair distribution of means and resources and the recognition of people’s rights across status in a given society (Fraser &amp; Honneth, 2003), the increased interconnection of struggles across the world has broadened social justice in ways that heighten the stakes of translation. The leverage and enactment of the multiple rights which social justice now encompasses is contingent upon the organization, the practice and the theorization of translation (Boéri, 2022) in all its modalities (translation, interpreting, bilingual facilitation, fixing, subtitling, dubbing) and across communication contexts of resistance (social movements, media networks, cultural institutions).</p> <p>Combining a translational focus on social justice and a social justice focus on translation can harness the political and ethical potentials of this area of enquiry and practice, emerging from the liminal space between activism and the service economy (Baker, 2013; Boéri, 2008, 2012; Boéri &amp; Delgado Luchner, 2021; Piróth &amp; Baker, 2020; Pérez-González, 2010, 2016), social justice and social movements (de Sousa Santos, 2005; Doerr, 2018; Fernández, 2021), social justice and public policy (García-Beyaert, 2017), social justice and art (Boéri, 2020), social justice and education (Bahadır, 2011; Boéri &amp; Jerez, 2011; Gill &amp; Guzmán, 2011), and social justice and gender equality ( Baldo et al., 2021; Guo, 2021; Spurlin, 2018). On the one hand, a translational approach to social justice invites scholars to account for the counter-hegemonic potential of cross-language communication, which tends to be overlooked in an all too often monolingual account of multilingual processes and spaces of resistance. On the other hand, a social justice focus on translation can yield powerful insights into the agency of the translation actors as dynamic/innovative agents in the performance of their duties, who may depart from and rethink deontological principles of impartiality and expertise. These two complementary and overlapping standpoints have the potential to renew our understanding of how social actors (including translators and interpreters) think and perform social justice beyond the monolingual and expert paradigms.</p> <p>Bringing together studies from across contexts, regions and territories of resistance, this special issue aims to advance knowledge of the challenges and the stakes of overcoming language barriers in social justice endeavours. We seek submissions across translation and interpreting studies, with particular interest in interdisciplinary perspectives which can cast a critical light onto the social justice stakes of translation across contexts and modalities.

She has published articles on audiovisual translation and localization in prestigious journals such as <em>MonTi</em>, <em>LANS</em>, <em>Trans</em>, <em>Sendebar</em>, among others, as well as chapters of several books with leading publishers. She is also the author of a <a href="">recently-published book on localization</a> with the prestigious publisher <em>Palgrave Macmillan</em>.</p> <p>Dr. De los Reyes Lozano and Dr. Mejías-Climent are the main researchers of the project entitled <a href=""><em>DubTA: La traducción automática aplicada a los procesos de traducción para doblaje [the application of machine translation to the dubbing process]</em></a>, funded by the Universitat Jaume I over the period 2021-2022 (ref. UJI-B2020-56).</p> <p><strong>The impact of machine translation in the audiovisual translation environment: professional and academic perspectives</strong></p> <p>Interest in Machine Translation (MT) and post-editing (PE) is coming on apace: the arrival in 2017 of new translation services based on artificial intelligence algorithms such as DeepL, Microsoft Translate and Google Translate represented a new leap forward, and an increasing number of translation fields are incorporating MT and PE into their professional environment. These newer systems use artificial neural networks (NMT or neural machine translation) and, as the previous generation of MT (rule-based, statistical, example-based, and hybrid), work with large aligned corpora and produce results that some may consider comparable to certain human translations. It so happens that in order to produce an added value, the translator must provide something extra over the machine.</p> <p>MT and PE are also gradually beginning to intersect with some fields where the use of the machine is of little interest because of the essentially aesthetic dimension of translation (e.g. Literary Translation, Comic Translation, Video Games Localization, Transcreation or Audiovisual Translation, among others). In the particular case of Audiovisual Translation (AVT), MT has traditionally remained distant due to the difficulty of fully processing the information generated by the audiovisual text: as a multimodal product, not only linguistic content is involved, but also the visual and acoustic configuration of the product must be taken into account. This happens in all AVT modes (dubbing, subtitling, audio description, subtitling for the deaf and the hard of hearing, respeaking, etc.). Likewise, the huge variety of audiovisual genres without domain-specific terminology makes the work of MT engines even more difficult. In addition, it is also very difficult to process dialogues within the soundtrack of the audiovisual text, in which many different characters participate, there are distant voices or sound effects, noises, etc. This means that, on many occasions, the scripts do not correspond exactly with the script of the final product.</p> <p>It has been estimated that the use of MT allows notable productivity gains at least partly, on specific conditions (some translators achieve outputs of 3,000 to 9,000 words per day) (Zhechev, 2012). The PE process is becoming increasingly popular in the language industries, as confirmed in 2017 by the publication of the ISO 18587:2017 standard (Translation services - Post-editing of machine translation output - Requirements). This PE technique poses a case of conscience for the translator: accepting that he or she is not the originator of his or her own translation for the benefit of the machine. Among other aspects, this new situation involves a number of ethical issues, such as the client explicitly informing the translator that the text he/she will be working with represents raw MT results, as the ISO norm states, or the way confidentiality is approached when the material is processed by freely-available MT engines, to name a but a few. These issues, although widely explored in other areas, have been scarcely researched thus far in the particular field of AVT.</p> <p>Furthermore, in recent months, the professional world has been expressing different positions towards the imposition that some companies seem to be making of MT in the AVT environment. On the one hand, the <a href="">Machine Translation Manifesto</a> published by AVTE (Audiovisual Translators Europe) in 2021 shows a critical but constructive stance towards the entrenchment of this new technology as another tool that can be adapted to the translators’ needs. On the other hand, <a href="">ATRAE</a> and <a href="">ATAA</a> (the associations of audiovisual translators in Spain and France, respectively) have issued statements on their social media censuring the use of MT in AVT and considering it dangerous and demeaning to the work of the human translator, following the controversy generated by the fact that the Spanish subtitles of the popular Netflix show “The Squid Game” were created by post-editing. The debate on this controversy is open and may give rise to many avenues of research.</p> <p>Bearing this current context in mind, it is worth exploring how the incorporation of MT into the translation processes is affecting the professional spheres, and how the academic circles are broadening their knowledge of MT. We invite original, substantial, and unpublished research in all aspects of MT converging with the professional and academic environment of AVT in any mode. We seek submissions across the entire spectrum of MT/AVT-related research, but with a particular focus on the close interaction between researchers and practitioners who are looking to apply the latest MT technology to their tasks.
