Philology Matters


The present article deals with translation to be the fifth activity in addition to speaking, writing, listening and reading. It dwells upon it not as a type of exercise which is widely used in teaching a foreign language but as a separate type of activity. The main attention is also paid to different viewpoints on the matter and the author made an attempt to prove that the translation can be used both as a skill and a type of activity requiring special competence for mastering it as a specialty. Translation, being an independent science, has its own methods, ways, rules and important competences which are in its domain.
