My problem is similar to: LaTeX not hyphenating properly, text running off page I have two column layout and some words extend beyond margin due to hyphenation issues.

The difference is that I do not want to hyphenate the trouble-making word. I want to have it automatically moved to a new line.

By automatically I mean I shall make no changes in the text within the column. You may imagine, that the text is to be written by someone else and inserted to my template with \input{}.
