This chapter of the book is meant to offer a first glimpse of the main topic selected with a short presentation of the subtopics discussed. This part draws attention to the problems analysed in each of the theoretical/applicative chapters and informs the international readership about some of the issues that one must deal with when tackling particular types of intersemiotic translation (viewed as an umbrella construction for sign and sign set transposition—whether one deals with images, sounds, linguistic units). Signs, symbols and meanings are so closely related that one cannot create any communicative strand only by considering one of them.
