Google gives the word 'Tempus' and 'Aevum' but they seem like they mean moment and age. Is there a more appropriate translation for the word 'Time,' definition of:

"the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole."

"a nonspatial continuum that is measured in terms of events which succeed one another from past through present to future."

Thank you for your help

Traupman gives tempus for time and aetas for age, and tempus means more than just a point, it also means a season or a period and quite a few other things: consult your dictionary. Tempus is, as Manuel said, probably the word you want. Although you do have other options as well, including spatium, which can refer to time as well as space, and intervallum, which can also refer to more than just space.
