Abstract

This article studies stylistic issues of translation in the frame of English-speaking political
discourse. The key difference between stylistic devices and expressive means, tropes and figures of
speech is defined. The most problematic aspects of rendering stylistic tools in political texts are
distinguished. Allusions as a translational challenge of rendering nationally biased units in the target
language are studied. The translational methods and means within the given political texts are
characterized and the chosen equivalents in the target language are researched. The efficient variants
of rendering metaphors, euphemisms, neologisms, clichés and abbreviations within Ukrainian are
examined.
