News articles are important sources of information and often shape public opinion on various issues, in particular, regarding the Russian-Japanese relations, and therefore adequate translation and text analysis when working with Japanese news texts require a special attention. This study aims to identify features of the translation of Japanese news and particularly news headlines into Russian on the topic of the Russian-Japanese relations. The main objectives of the research are the analysis of the features of the Japanese and Russian media languages, the study of translational transformations as well as the further deepening of research towards the analysis of news headlines, their linguistic features, and identification of the main features of the headings’ translation into Russian. For the analysis of news texts published on leading Japanese media resources (Asahi-Shimbun, Yomiuri-Shimbun, NHK-news, etc.) and translated by Russian news agencies (Inosmi, Rambler, Kommersant, etc.), methods of a quantitative content analysis and a comparative analysis of the text in the original language (Japanese) and the target language (Russian) will be used. As a result of the study, we identified the main features of the translation of Japanese news texts into Russian and successfully applied the fundamental translation theory of L. Barkhudarov, which ultimately allowed us to distinguish the most frequently used features of news headlines and the most prevalent translation transformations. The practical significance of this study is an ability to implement this work as a toolkit for translators and students studying the discipline "Social and political translation".

Keywords: theory of translation, Japanese-Russian relations, news translation, news headlines
