Exactly.

Now I started to wonder how to make an "auto-fill on steroids", which
would do that for me...

It is not as silly as it sounds.  I have a friend who does some
research about automatic translation, language analysis and correction
etc.  I am fairly confident that something like this could work.  Of
course, it would not work 100% of the time, but for that, even 80%
might be fine.

Best,
