Keywords: intercultural communication, translation, society, interaction, communication


The relevance of the study is due to the fact that the issues of culture as a universal context, as well as communication and translation as the main and fundamental types of interaction between people, came to the fore. Recognition of the direct value of the diversity of world cultures, the rejection of the colonial cultural policy, led to the rapid development of the relevant branches of knowledge. A significant contribution to the development of questions of translation activities belongs to domestic and foreign scientists.

The purpose of the article is to examine the issue of intercultural communication in its connection with the theory of translation, with particular attention to the latter as one of the main means of communication.

The task of the article is to reveal the essence of the concept of "intercultural communication" and consider the place and significance of the translation as its direct tool in this structure.

In the article the author investigates the issue of the emergence and development of the concept of "intercultural communication," as well as its influence on the life of modern society, reveals the essence of the concept of "translation" in its structure and analyzes the connection and influence of translation into the final result in the process of intercultural communication. The latter begins with the usual recognition of the existence of cultural differences between representatives of different cultures. Intercultural communication is possible when communicants understand each other, and the translation in this process helps to achieve mutual understanding and is of the utmost importance for maintaining direct connections between those who communicate, but belongs to different linguistic and cultural districts.

The study does not exhaust all aspects of the translation role in the process of intercultural communication. Further study requires the means to improve the level of qualification and the competence of translators in the field of intercultural communication.
