Irina Telezhko – Yulia Biryukova – Victoria Kurilenko
The research focuses on forming tolerance in profession-oriented text translators as part of the process of developing their sociocultural competence. To this end, the author analyzes the notion of “tolerance” in Russian, German and English linguistic culture and the specifics of profession-oriented text translators’ work. Based on a survey of professional translators, the concept of “profession-oriented text translators’ tolerance” is considered a personal professional quality (in this case, related to geologists). The author justifies its importance and proposes a model for forming translators’ tolerance at four stages of developing the sociocultural competence of profession-oriented text translators. This professionally important quality will help translators successfully carry out cross-cultural communication in their professional sphere.
Key words: tolerance, profession-oriented translation, cross-cultural communication, professional sphere, sociocultural competence
