In the near future and even today more fields of translation are expected to move towards new translation practices. There are several reasons for these changes. Recently, translation activity has gained a new dimension in our modern society witnessing important transformations especially in information and communication technologies and turning into a global village. These transformations were brought by new technologies. Translation technologies were also affected from this situation and as a result translators have found themselves in more different settings than in the past during the translating process. In relation with this, our study discusses the journey of the translation activity from its linear dimension to non-linear dimension. In doing so, the study also deals with the underlying the reasons of this journey and focuses on the concept of the productivity which can be associated with the non-linear translation approach as well as differentiating it from the concept of the translation quality associated with the linear translation approach. The study follows a descriptive approach and presents some figures as to the discussed matter.
