This paper aims to put forward constructive views to the design of online literature translation system based on the cloud computing model. This can make full use of the advantages of mobile cloud computing. Relatively, the cost of traditional translation server-side development is high, and it’s tedious to upgrading, maintenance, management, and the difficulties of extend impact the key problems compute-intensive mobile terminal applications performance. Make cloud computing to reach every corner in real life, can effectively solve the problem of the own limited resources of mobile device for the use of computationally intensive and data intensive, represented by smart phone. It can extend the processing capacity of mobile equipment, and eliminate the regional restrictions. Through this, user can access the services provided by the cloud computing environment through the Internet, anytime and anywhere.
