Summary/Abstract: A utility text has been selected for this analysis, serving a wide range of recipients. I would like to prove that a “good” translator can deal with any intricate or complicated text, especially in terms of language (grammatical, stylistic, symbolic, semantic and pragmatic), which is the subject of the translation process. In the translated text, we will not only deal with an innovative compositional solution, but also with an attempt to merge the language functioning in certain social groups in which a partial cultural and social transformation of reality has been observed. It is not without significance in such precisely presented types of translation (analyzed cabaret texts) that aesthetic and social activities play an important role, which are adapted to the native culture of the language of the translated text. Due to the fact that the presented Czech-language text was not previously translated into Polish, we can observe some innovative translating strategies implemented by the translator, while retaining the assumed artistic effect of alliteration.
