The article studies peculiarities of communicative adequate translation of semiotically marked culturonyms, which serve as codes for the Soviet time reality depicted by the author. Moreover the research focuses on specific English translation discourse of Bulgakov’s prose where the reality can be viewed in the light of double subjectivity of mentality, i.e. the author’s and the translator’s. The results of the research show that communicative adequacy is possible in case the translator conveys the play of words represented by palimpsest of the Soviet time discourse synchronous to the epoch of the source text and its translated version.
