Using RealBASIC as a text analysis languge

I am not a programmer but a writer.
I write in my mother tongue, English.
These texts I translate into German using a "translation framework" that I have built.
The framework is used manually. It is effective but slow and I would like to automate steps in it using RealBASIC.
Simply described the steps are:
1. Separating strings (sentences) into sentence-parts.
2. Re-sequencing those according to German grammar needs.
3. Transforming where necessary and
4. Translating the sentence-parts into German.
Today I use openoffice writer and a simple table database to manage the workspace.
Does anyone use RB to perform such tasks and point me in the right start-off direction?
I would be very grateful for any help.
Kind regards and enjoy your week-end, patforkin.

I have not personally done this, but it should not be difficult to implement this in REALBasic. Determine the exact flow of your manual translation using your framework. Generate a flow diagram that helps you document the flow. It will also serve as a specification to implement it in code.
