Summary/Abstract: The article constitutes and attempt to define the role of language transfer as form of preparation for professional consecutive translation. Transfer in translatology is a cognitive process of interpreting and producing L1 texts in L2. Training with elements of language transfer is necessary in the process of education at every level. It is surely indispensable for prospective translators or interpreters. Even though the article is grounded in the assumptions of the theory of translation, it deals with the issue from a practical perspective. The author presents examples of exercises which contain elements of language transfer and demonstrates how they could develop a translator’s competence as both a communicator and a teacher of translation.
