In recent years, vigorously developing the protection of intangible cultural heritage has become an important part of building a socialist culture with Chinese characteristics, shouldering the important task of promoting cultural exchanges and maintaining cultural diversity.

Based on the big data, this article uses the early warning indicator system to protect and research the translation of non-heritage folk literature in my country and other tasks. Folk literature is our national treasure. It is very important to translate them into English, the most popular international language through the perspective of mesotranslatology. The English translation of intangible cultural heritage works of folk literature, as the carrier of China's excellent traditional culture, helps to promote the export process of the core values of socialism with Chinese characteristics, so that the essence of Chinese culture can be spread and popularized.

Enhance the cultural self-confidence of the people and the cultural strength of the country. The experimental research results show that, based on the perspective of mesotranslatology, the perspective of mesotranslatology plays a very important role in the translation of folk literature for some work in our country's folk literature translation.
