Technology developments in the 20th century had an impact on major changes in human habits, especially in the field of translation. Technology has created translation machines that can be used to change language from source language to target language quickly. A translator needs to adapt to the presence of existing translation machines to facilitate the translation process effectively. Machine translation can provide translation results quickly and efficiently. however, machine translation often contains significant errors, because it does not match the original context in the source language. The translator's abilities are needed to make translation adjustments from utilizing of machine translation in the context of science in discussing the source. This research discusses the abilities needed by a translator in the digital era to utilize a translation machine and produce high-quality translation results. This research uses a comprehensive methodology, including literature reviews, case studies, and surveys based on data from previous research to provide insight into translator competencies and the implications of using machine translation in the digital era. Machine translation is a very valuable development asset, but the competence of a translator is the most important and translation must remain human-centered to achieve optimal translation quality. The conclusions in this research highlight the importance of overcoming the gap between machine and human translation for the sustainable development of the translation field in the digital era.
