Abstract. The article examines the problem of transferring colloquialisms when translating B. Akunin’s literary works. The author provides a survey of the existing views on the problem of translating colloquial vocabulary. Special attention is paid to the techniques for transferring colloquialisms, among which the author identifies the following ones: 1) common-literary words with subsequent references or the translator’s commentary compensating for the lost information; 2) partial equivalents in the target language; 3) descriptive translation; 4) generalization. The author evaluates the degree of preservation of stylistic colouring, national colour and cultural and dialectal specificity of colloquial vocabulary.
Key words and phrases: просторечие, нулевая передача, нейтрализация, эквивалентность, описательный перевод, компенсация, транскрипция, семантическая потеря, colloquialism, zero transfer, neutralization, equivalence, descriptive translation, compensation, transcription, semantic loss.
