Abstract Nowadays the traditional sources of allusions have considerably expanded under the influence of globalization and technological innovation. New multi-level, multi-modal and multi-functional allusions emerge in language, especially in the language for special purposes (LSP). Readers are constantly challenged by the authors of modern technical texts to explore new terminological and rhetorical horizons, to get acquainted with new meanings of well-known lexical items, and to experience new stylistic constructs. The paper investigates multi-level allusions introducing the ‘4R approach’ to dealing with challenges associated with translation of allusions.
