Converting Visual Basic to C#

For work I’m having to convert about 1600 lines of Visual Basic code to C#. What this code does is attempt to automate our order processing in a unidirectional fashion: it scrapes Amazon for our latest unshipped orders and generates emails or XML (depending on what the distributor requires on their end) for each order. This is a huge pain because nearly each function of the VB is hard-coded and needs to be reworked. While it shouldn’t be that grueling to rework we’re on a tight deadline to integrate it into our existing C# application so that our new customer service representative can use just a single solution instead of many.
