Sous-titreurs audiovisuels: Chronique d'une mort annoncée

8452865575 e820fe19b4 zLes traducteurs professionnels, victimes collatérales d'une meilleure circulation linguistique des œuvres audiovisuelles et cinématographiques européennes? Entre développement du fansubbing illégal et soutien financier de la Commission européenne aux pratiques de sous-titrage low cost et à de potentielles traductions par algorithmes, le paradoxe pourrait très vite devenir réalité...


Privacy Shield replaces Safe Harbour, but only the name has changed

13334048894 6e8b421c4e oThe replacement for the EU-US Safe Harbour agreement that was ruled unlawful by a European court last year may well fail the same legal tests as its predecessor.

The plan offers precious little detail on the most contentious issue at hand – restricting benefits for EU migrants. That said, the fact that the EU has agreed that the UK could at least potentially apply an “emergency brake” on these payments is a major breakthrough.
