As the level of Russian-Chinese relations of strategic cooperation is constantly growing, the demand for highly qualified translators from Russian is growing in China. The theory of translation studies and the theory of the methodology of teaching translation set a new vector in the organization of the educational process under the bachelor’s degree program “Translation — Russian and Chinese” in China, which has a direct impact on the quality of training of translators. A new trend in the bachelor’s degree program in China is becoming an educational process focused on both subjects — teachers and students, the so-called the concept of a dual subject.

Keywords: translation studies, methods of teaching translation, Russian-Chinese translation, training of translators in China, Heilongjiang University.
