The quality of translation is the premise of ensuring foreign communication. As one of the important media of communication and cooperation between China and the world, translation plays an important role in China's opening to the outside world and economic development. In today's increasingly visible process of globalization, translation plays a key role in promoting communication and understanding between different cultures. High-quality translation is not only about simple language conversion, but also about conveying cultural background, values and ways of thinking. By studying the impact of translation quality on cultural exchanges around the world, we can better appreciate the importance of translation in promoting global multicultural coexistence and interaction. The quality of translation is the soul of translation, and paying attention to the quality of translation in the process of translation is a topic that cannot be ignored. With the increasing globalization of the world economy, foreign-related business and foreign-related translation are increasing in daily work, which puts forward new requirements for improving the quality of translation. This paper will start with some common problems in translation practice and explore the relevant factors affecting translation quality from multiple perspectives.
