Synchronised from the original, with subtitles? – Languages and audio visual media

In the last few years, access to audio visual media has become faster and more diverse. This is especially visible in movies and TV series. Users decide on the form in which they access the content and when; they demand multilingual versions, flexibility, and availability as soon as possible. Technical advances such as streaming, internet media libraries, video portals and storage media like DVD and Blu-Ray allow constant access to content. Additionally, social media have created a platform for fans who translate their favourite films themselves (crowdsourcing), thus putting pressure on the professional translation sector.
