Abstract: Interpretation is not only a process of language communication, but also a cross-cultural communication activity. Differences between Chinese and French cultures are mainly influenced by the geographical location, social customs, historical and cultural background. As a result, the two cultures have different ways of thinking, values, etiquette, and cultural implications, etc. In Chinese-French interpretation, cultural background differences, and interpreting problems such as different daily expressions, statement structures and number usages, may cause crosscultural communication barriers. Therefore, only by paying attention to these problems, emphasizing the target language usage habits, and constantly improving their comprehensive quality, can the interpreter effectively improve the quality of interpreting.

Key words: interpretation, cultural differences, countermeasure
