The T&I Studies Program and the Melbourne French Theatre have just signed a student placement agreement which will provide French-English translator trainees with the opportunity to develop their skills in the field of Theatre Translation, and in particular in Surtitling.
MFT is one of the rare companies to stage plays in French and to use surtitles in English. Surtitles are generally used for opera and plays performed in a foreign language. Surtitling in the theatre is surely not an everyday phenomenon. The translation exercice is different to other types of translations and its complexity makes it an extremely interesting field of research and practice.
The MFT, founded in 1977, is a non-profit incorporated association under the patronage of the French Ambassador to Australia. It presents two plays a year and tours schools across Victoria, aiming at cross-fertilising Australian and French-speaking cultures through theatre.
