The chapter describes major advances in translation technologies (translation memory and machine translation) and explains how they have influenced our understanding of translation, particularly the concept of translation quality. The discussion focuses on the notion of translation as ‘text’, showing that technological changes have created a rift between Translation Studies theories and a new notion of translation circulating in the industry. The chapter finally identifies trends in research which seek to develop new knowledge to address the rift identified.
