Abstract: 

In the article the features of professional training in a university related to translation of texts are observed. The authors prove that translation is one of the skills provided for the foreign language. Translation is a necessary condition of the students' sufficient communicative competence in professional activities. Authors analyse the new approaches to translation of professional texts; types of training exercises for translation are listed. The importance of a professional text and a method to use it in preparing students of non-philological specialties are revealed.
Analysis of recent research and publications has shown that currently there is a lack of fundamental methodological studies related to training interpreters of specialized texts. This is obviously caused by the specificity and complexity of translation as a kind of speech activity. Purpose of this paper is to reveal the importance of a professional text and a method to use it in preparing students of non-philological specialties, to analyze the types of exercises and their feasibility. Authors offer to discuss some examples of tasks for students aimed at practicing the ability to allocate the necessary information in the text.
