Influenced by factors such as historical culture and logic of thinking, when English and Chinese are applied in practice, the in-depth meaning of color words will be different. In order to ensure the accuracy of communication, detailed analysis is needed. This paper will combine the concept of Chinese and English differences to discuss the ideological and emotional, word meaning extension, skill application, and dissimience of the words in translation, and combine them with common words to make reference for improving the translation quality of Chinese and English color words.
