In Europe, hundreds of programmes are now available 24 hours a day through cable or satellite and DVDs make it possible to watch a film in any number of languages. In Europe, the US and in developing countries, subtitling is increasingly used to improve language proficiency or to encourage young children to read (KOOLSTRA: 1993). Subtitling also allows the hard of hearing to have access to information and culture, and helps ethnic minorities foster their own culture and language.

Imhauser’s paper Pedagogy of subtitling gives grounds for optimism; since she demonstrates that it is possible to offer good translation programmes that at the same time create the necessary links between the academia and the practitioners.
