ABSTRACT
This article discusses the basic principle of the translation of the culture and explores some techniques of the translation of culture. It also studies the impact of cultural differences on translation in several aspects. Language is a social behavior that reflects culture. Being ignorant of the target language culture, we would be a failure in translating, thus translating a langue into another foreign language necessarily involves culture integration. It is not enough to be aware of the importance of integrating culture into translating. To integrate culture into foreign language translating, it is necessary to be clear about the cultural differences between the foreign language and the native language and how the target-language-culture is reflected in its language.
