If this is for some sort of job, you might want to hire a programmer. If this is a new hobby or a side project, then you'll have to know (or learn) what's wrong with the command, "Compare two strings."
As for which languages you should use, you'll need something with a GUI focus. I'd suggest C# or VB.NET, partly because Visual Studio is one of the best IDEs I've ever used. Python is also a popular choice, partly because of what it will do for you, and what it demands of you. Microsoft did some work in the past with HTML based "applications." This would allow you to leverage the power of Internet Explorer, assuming you know enough JScript and the DOM to implement what you're going for, but it's also extremely limiting, and I don't know how HTA's behavior has changed since IE 6.
