Abstract
This paper focused on the cultural adjustment(s) in dubbing of American film series into Suroboyoan (West Javanese). The concept of dubbing is similar to that of a speech translation of a movie over a film. Dubbing allows individuals to bring together two seemingly opposite or incompatible ideologies without conflating them. It also leaves space of noticeable incompleteness and therefore a space for subjectivity. [1]. The translator, therefore, must be aware of the culture of both the source language and the target language. At the same time, she/he must consider the equivalence and the meaning implied in each part of the text. This study used a descriptive qualitative approach, which employed analysing documents as the primary data collection and analysis method. The object of the study consisted of several series of Walker Texas Ranger in dubbed and transcript versions. Both the translation products and the original dialogues were taken into account in the scope of work. The writer then analysed the cultural adjustment(s) made by the translator in the process of translation, particularly in the case of localisation.
