Basically in Sitecore projects, usually we need to create a new language for items. For some languages, we just need to copy the same content from an existing language.

For example, copy content from en to en-GB languages.

Is it possible to do this in Sitecore out of the box ?

Yes, Sitecore OOTB provide a translation module under versions tab as below.
