This paper, through a detailed research on the problems existed in C-E translation of Xi'an regional culture, points out that the main reasons are: lack of the equivalence on cultural exchange and lack of cooperation between the government and non-government communities. To resolve misunderstanding from cultural backgrounds, social customs as well as thought patterns, we try to present some translation strategies which include trans-editing strategy, anaphora resolution strategy, substitutive strategy, fixed translation strategy and structure rearrangement strategy. Owing to the unique cultural status Xi'an has been included in the Silk Road Construction, we should set our cultural publicity research in a cross-language, cross-cultural environment; then we can propose some countermeasures as follows: to highlight the local culture core values; to strengthen the government functions in cultural administration; to encourage non-governmental organizations' participation in the cultural industry research and translation; to strengthen the training of media and practitioners in culture publicity translation.
