A Study on the Subtitle Translation in Downton Abbey VI from the Perspective of Reception Aesthetics Theory

Introduction

In company with further advancement of reform and opening up, foreign films and TV series are abundantly introduced into China, which spurs the boom of subtitle translation. Hence, Chinese scholars start to concentrate on the study of subtitle translation and they have attempted to study subtitle translation from various perspectives including relevance theory, eco-translatology, functional equivalence and so on, but few of them from the perspective of Reception Aesthetics.

Recently, the development of Reception Aesthetics Theory(RA) has provided a new perspective to explore the connection between audience(readers) and writers, writers and translators. Emergence of RA has shifted the author-oriented version standing for a long time in translation into the reader-oriented version, which requires translators to pay more attention to the readers and to maximally consider readers’ life experiences, existing knowledge and so on. The requirements for subtitle translation are consistent with the core concepts of Reception Aesthetics Theory, both of which focusing on targeted receptors.

This paper aims to see how translators achieve the fusion of horizon between the TV program and targeted audience through the study of subtitle translation in the case of Downton Abbey VI from the perspective of Reception Aesthetics Theory.

Demonstration

    1. An Overview of Subtitling Translation

Generally speaking, film translation could be divided into dubbing and subtitling. Dubbing acts as an auditory complement of source language, while subtitling serves as a visual complement to information of original film and TV programs. In this paper, the author focuses on the study of subtitling translation.

      1. The Definition of Subtitling

Up till now, there is no authoritative definition to answer what subtitling is. The author selects three definitions for reference.

Definition 1: “Subtitling, a particular type of language transfer, which is a written, condensed translation of a predominantly spoken original” (Nedegaard-Larsen, 1993:212).
