Title: About Translation of General Scientific Terminology Into English: Lexical Variants or Conscious Mistakes
Rubric: Functional and Cognitive Terminology
Abstract: Examples of conveying general scientific terminology from Russian into English are considered in the article. Bigger part of the collected material, when translated directly, is not understood by native speakers. This testifies to the fact that a lot of research issues of contemporary terminology, theory of translation as well as practice of foreign language teaching still remain unsolved.
Keywords: general scientific terminology, translation theory, terminological variation, terminological equivalent.
