Abstract: Though translator’s professional competence is a multidimensional phenomenon, until now there is no consistent approach what components it consists of. Any competence is socially determined, i.e. it appears within a social institution, which imposes certain restrictions on it. The analysis allowed identifying and analyzing such important components of the professional competence as a personal one, i.e. personal qualities that a translator should have for performing his professional activity, and a social one, i.e. having communication methods adopted in the professional translation environment.
