Xu Yuanchong, as an outstanding contemporary translator in China, has made important contributions to promoting the translation of Chinese literary works and the going out of Chinese culture. Xu Yuanchong summed up Chinese poetry translation as "beautify art, create competition for excellence" in translation practice, and his translation theory has strong foresight and modernity, which has a positive influence and important role in promoting the innovation and development of Chinese literary translation theory and cultural propaganda. Therefore, the study on modernity of Xu Yuanchong's translation thoughts is helpful to clarify the historical value and orientation of his translation thoughts, and can also provide some modernity schemes for Chinese translation circles.
