Abstract
Translation is the action of bilingual inter-cultural communication, where the translator shall remember differences in the social and cultural experience between speakers of source and target languages. Use of social networking sites for inter-cultural communication leads to appearance of various communities where topics, strategies and solutions are discussed. The research objective is to describe variability of translation strategies in translation from Russian to Hindi by translator and by speaker of the language. We consider the degree of equivalent correlation as exemplified by comparison of Russian and Indian realia in translation to Hindi with the aim of achieving inter-cultural communication. The subject of research is a translation of a text that includes religious vocabulary and its variant translations from Russian to Hindi. Materials from the Orthodoxy in India community on the VK.ru social networking site were used.
