Artificial intelligence is widely used in a variety of industries and occupations. There is no denying that the translation industry in general and literary translation in particular have experienced significant changes. As a result, it is anticipated that artificial intelligence technology would ultimately displace human translators. This study will examine if artificial intelligence poses a threat to or an aid to human translators. Based on artificial intelligence technology used in the translation industry, this essay examines how translators, the translation process, and the job of translators have all been affected by computer-aided translation utilizing Google Translator. Following a post-editing examination, the relationship between artificial intelligence and the translation industry is also examined. Additionally, the participants' explanations and observations of Google Translator output and human translations are compared to two different text kinds — technical and literary texts — and their quality is then tallied.
