1. A machine implemented method for providing translated web content, comprising the steps of:

  • receiving a first request from a user for content in a second language translated from content in a first language from a first Internet source;

    retrieving the content in the first language from the first Internet source;

    dividing the content in the first language into a plurality of translatable components, wherein a translatable component includes a segment of text;

    determining whether there are translatable components for which no corresponding translation is found in a database that stores translations for translatable components generated previously;

    scheduling for translation of translatable components that do not have corresponding translations in the database and using a human translator to translate each translatable component into the second language, wherein each segment of text is translated as a unit;

    storing into the database the translations of the translatable components as translated components;

    receiving a second request from a user for the translated content in the second language corresponding to the content in the first language from the first Internet source;

    retrieving the content in the first language from the first Internet source;

    dividing the received content in the first language into a plurality of translatable components;

    generating the translated content in the second language by modifying the received content in the first language so that each translatable component is replaced with a corresponding translated component stored in the database; and

    sending the translated content to the user as a response to the second request.
