Parallel corpus are bilingual or multilingual corpus composed of the original text and its parallel counterparts in the target language. Bilingual parallel corpushas the closest relationship with translation, providing rich translated texts and convenient translation means. The new media era has put forward new requirements for tourism translation. As the number of foreign tourists coming to Liaoning increases year by year, the problems in tourism translation in Liaoning become more and more obvious. The basic research on Liaoning tourism translation multimodal parallel corpus in the new media era, including theoretical basis, technical support, development trend and standard formulation, will provide basic support for the construction of multimodal corpus and realize the integration of various media forms, such as words, images, voice and video, which can fully mobilize users' multiple sensory systems and provide comprehensive tourism translation services.
