Taking the mutual relationship between meta discourse, context and field as the starting point, and the process of French Chinese translation as the observation object, this paper, on the basis of inheriting and carrying forward Mr. Fu Lei's translation concepts of "focusing on spirit rather than shape", "God exists in form, and form is God", conducts innovative research on French Chinese code switching and information delivery; at the same time, combining the new national standard of foreign language teaching in the new era, this paper explores the application value of the dialectical mutual agreement between meta discourse and context in French Chinese translation teaching. The research shows, in the process of translation, there is a better way to deal with the relationship between meta-discourse and context, that is, the combination of form and spirit, literal translation and free translation. Translation is a decision-making process in fact, ranging from the determination of style and structure to the selection of sentence patterns and vocabulary. After selection, it is the process of applying skills.
