Abstract: The aim of the present research is to examine the impact of recent technological developments in machine translation (MT) in the language industry. The objectives are: 1. To define the value of MT in terms of suitability and convenience in meeting expressed requirements in those cases where MT is demanded; 2. To examine the potential increase in productivity through a conscious use of the tool; 3. To analyse those activities aimed at satisfying the customer’s explicit and implicit needs with MT. The use of MT is a matter of fact, and it deserves serious attention: its advantages and disadvantages can be outlined only by looking at translation as an inherently economic activity and by considering MT more for its potential, than for its limits. The evaluation of MT needs to be focused on functionality and economic utility, while quality assessment methods for human translation and for MT Need to be considered separately and in a more functional perspective. MT needs to be seen no longer as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution but as a means to differentiate services and to satisfy expressed needs. Suppliers need to adjust their idea of quality to that of customers, for whom the highest quality isn’t always the only demand.
