The present study is devoted to the automatic adaptation of texts in Russian. Text adaptation is applied, for example, to people with speech or intellectual disabilities, for children, for adults with low literacy levels, for teaching foreign language and in natural language processing systems. The theoretical part of the present work describes the scope of the texts adaptation application and related features of existing approaches to simplification, the concept of text readability, the methods of automatic text adaptation at the lexical level and methods of evaluating simplifying systems. The practical part of the study describes the process of developing the texts simplification system, explains the principles of selecting and implementing the lexical adaptation methods, provides examples and evaluation of the developed program results. The resulting texts can be used by experts to facilitate manual adaptation (as an intermediate stage of simplification), as well as by RCTS students to assist them in learning new vocabulary.
