Converts a number of seconds to a user readable timespan. The exact result differs for each client language.
Regardless of the noSeconds parameter, the function never returns more than two different time units of precision. i.e. if seconds is greater than 3600, seconds will be omitted. If it is greater than 86400, minutes will also be omitted.
