- Lock-in of the Language Transfer Techniques on the German and the Dutch Cinema Markets - Historical Development and Consequences In Germany and the Netherlands, foreign movies are dubbed or subtitled respectively and these practices have become quasi-standards of language transfer for foreign films on the respective markets. Different cost structures underlie both language transfer techniques. This research project discusses the relevance of the different cost structures with respect to film distributors and, consequently, the cinema market structure. The rigidity of the language transfer regimes in both countries is explained by analysing the respective historical developments on the supply and demand side in both countries, guided by the theory of path dependency, supplemented by the concept of consumption skills.
