i ]~e describe the linguistic background of a Czech-to-Russian ~T system, stressing its features resulting from the closed related- ness of the two languages, above all the pos- sibility of a minimization of the transfer. Related linguistic problems are analyzed within the MT project, as well as in the perspective of contrastive linguistics. 1. The system of Czech-to-Russian MT system called RUSLAN is conceived ruimilarly as all linguistically based MT systems) as a modular system consisting (in brief) of a source language parser, a tranfer and a syn- thesis of the target language. The task is to translate texts from the domain of computers, in particular manuals of operating systems. Since in RUSLAN the source language is close- ly genetically related to the target one, some of the module...
