Automatically convert quotations in the form of “abc” to become ``abc"

I have a Microsoft Word document whose text I have copied into a LaTeX document. One of the many changes I need to make before it will look good, is to replace all quotation marks such as

"hello"

with the LaTeX version

``hello''

Is there some setting or macro I can define which will tell LaTeX to treat the former quotation marks exactly as it would treat the latter?

I usually 'fix' this by copying the opening quotes and replacing them with the appropriate LaTeX quote (backticks or two regular quotes). –  Zsub Apr 8 '12 at 15:00

Package csquotes

\documentclass[english]{article}

\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\MakeOuterQuote{"}

\begin{document}
Hello "World"!
\end{document}
