Diseño de un programa de subtitulación para vídeos pedagógicos

Abstract : This doctoral thesis addresses the process of developing a subtitling software adapted to the context of higher education from the point of view of a professional subtitler. First, it reviews the theoretical foundations of Audiovisual Translation and subtitling with the aim of defining the linguistic and semiotic characteristics of the audiovisual text and its translation. Second, it studies the explicit extratextual norms and identifies the functionalities required for their implementation allowing subtitlers to adapt the text to the target culture’s expectations. In addition, this work deals with the professional aspect of this practice, analysing the impact that technological advances have on the subtitling process and on the tools available to translators. It also presents the use of subtitled audiovisual material in higher education environments through the specific case of a multilingual and multicultural distance-learning environment. This analysis of subtitling from different perspectives concludes with the creation of Miro Translate, a hybrid cloud platform specially designed for subtitling video lectures. Finally, the quality of this tool is studied through a usability test that measures users' perceived satisfaction, efficiency and effectiveness in order to identify the necessary actions for the improvement of the platform.
