In a technologically driven multimedia society like the present one, the value of the moving images is crucial when it comes to engaging in communication. This greater currency of audiovisual productions has brought about the need for their translation into other languages, thus raising the importance and visibility of audiovisual translation (AVT), both as an academic discipline as well as a professional activity. This chapter starts by exploring the many instantiations of AVT, which can be broadly clustered in two main groups: revoicing and timed text. It then offers an overview of the main research topics that have marked the evolution of this area of knowledge, with a distinct emphasis on the synergies established between academia and the industry. This collaboration has been gradually strengthened over the years, from the early descriptive studies fixated on probing the nature of the translated product and the numerous overviews focused on the professional environment and labour dynamics, to the more recent interest in the application of automation and CAT tools to the practice of AVT and the in-vogue investigations centred on audience reception
