The present paper characterizes translative tendencies in the case of translating the Russian distributive
verbs into German. Russian literary texts and their renderings in German were used as an
example. In the first part of the article there were described distributive Aktionsarten verbs in Russian.
In the second part the author distinguished four groups of Russian distributive verbs equivalents in
German. The largest group is formed by equivalents distributive meaning of which is expressed in
German by syntactic means: plurality of object and/or subject. There were also noted the prefixed
verbs, adverbs and adverbial phrases with an equivalent of the base verb, as well as examples in which
the meaning of distributive verb is expressed by a German verb.
