1. A computer-implemented method for transferring content from one computer resource to another computer resource, comprising the steps of:

  • receiving a user command to enable automatic cutting-and-pasting in a destination first, source second sequence, with user enablement of automatic natural language translation;

    subsequent to receiving said command and enablement, receiving a user selection of one or more insertion points in the contents of a destination computer resource via a destination user interface, said computer resource consisting of an electronic document;

    subsequent to receiving said user-selected insertion points, receiving a user selection of one or more information elements via a source user interface;

    intercepting transfer of said information elements to said destination computer resource;

    determining which intercepted information elements are expressed in a natural language not matching a user-specified natural language;

    responsive to finding no existing natural language handling rule for an information element to be transferred;

    invoking a rule management user interface; and

    allowing via said rule management user interface a user to define an action to be taken selected from the list of invoking a natural language translation process, allowing transfer without modification, and isolating said information element, thereby blocking transfer of said intercepted information elements to said destination computer resource;

    performing one or more natural language handling actions on said intercepted information elements which do not match said user specified natural language as defined by one or more natural language handling rules; and

    transferring information elements to said destination which have been translated to said user specified natural language as a result of said handling actions.
