Abstract. The paper aims to reveal the influence of a translator’s mental imagery abilities in cognitive processing of information on literary translation. The article considers mental images nature and identifies their role in the process of literary translation. Scientific originality of the research lies in the fact that the author for the first time provides an experimental study on the influence of a translator’s mental imagery abilities on literary translation. The findings allow concluding that a translator’s cognitive readiness to create thematic-situational images in cognitive processing of information significantly influences translation adequacy.
