For many of us, life would be a lot easier if there were just two or three extra hours in the day.

Advancements in technology and word processing are seeing machine language translation take the traditional transfer of content from one language into another to a different level. Nowadays, the translation of set phrases and keywords from almost any language combination is just a simple click away.
