At the present stage, the study of phraseological units in translation from one language to another is becoming more and more relevant. Linguists pay great attention to the study of this issue in connection with the development of active cross-cultural relations that contribute to the expansion of free communication. This paper examines phraseological units of English and Russian in terms of possible translation methods. The main emphasis is made on equivalent and non-equivalent lexical and descriptive methods in translating phraseological units from English into Russian. This study confirms the possibility of using the above methods for translating phraseological units while preserving the semantic and emotional-stylistic format of the context. The paper analyzes phraseological units and methods of their translation, which allows to conclude about the problems and criteria for translating equivalent and non-equivalent phraseological units from English into Russian.
