We propose the variational iteration transform method in the sense of local fractional derivative, which is derived from the coupling method of local fractional variational iteration method and differential transform method. The method reduces the integral calculation of the usual variational iteration computations to more easily handled differential operation. And the technique is more orderly and easier to analyze computing result as compared with the local fractional variational iteration method. Some examples are illustrated to show the feature of the presented technique.
