Gender and the translation of audiovisual non-profit advertising

Corrius, Montse, De Marco, Marcella and Espasa, Eva (2016) Gender and the translation of audiovisual non-profit advertising. Revista de Lenguas para Fines Específicos, 22 (2). pp. 31-61. ISSN 2340-8561


This paper aims to explore to what extent students enrolled on Translation and Advertising courses are gender aware, i.e. whether they perceive that the decisions they take when translating or creating nonprofit advertisements which present gender-related concerns may have an impact on the social perception of gender. Three groups of students of different levels (undergraduate versus postgraduate) and belonging to two different universities (University of Vic – Spain, and London Metropolitan University – UK) come under scrutiny. Drawing on previous stages of the study, the authors intend to examine how it is possible to address ethical issues in students’ curricula, to what extent gender awareness guides students choices when they work with nonprofit adverts as opposed to commercial ones, and whether professional priorities and gender perspectives are compatible. A set of non-profit advertisements analysed and translated by the students and two Likert-type questionnaires have been used for this purpose. In addressing these questions, this study intends to fill the currently existing gap between gender, translation and advertising-focused research.
