Cite item

Abstract

The current article deals with the essence and content of the professional linguist-translator’s competence. The authors strongly consider that professional competence implies complex multi-dimensional category representing a range of separate key competences among which primarily is figured out a communicative competence including all its basic components. Communicative competence is viewed as an ability to use the language correctly in all the range of socially-determined situations. Communicative competence consists of several principal competences such as linguistic competence, discourse competence and sociocultural competence forming its core. Along with communicative competence within a structure of linguist-translator’s professional competence one can figure out a set of special competences depicting the specificity of a translator’s job. The key ones are presented by text-forming competence, technical competence and information-technological competence implying the practical usage of modern information technologies connected with a foreign text’s automatic processing, automatic annotation, abstracting and a foreign text’s translation.
The article displays the model of future linguist-translators’ professional competence formation, which includes above all previously mentioned competences, the teaching materials along with practical course of technical translation’s curriculum, bilingual learning automotive thesaurus and special manual training French-Russian technical translation skills. The main goal of our pedagogical model, above introducing it into educational process, is to ensure the efficiency of future linguist-translator’s professional competence.
