comment 'work' or 'working'
Neither form seems right. I'd use "...algorithm which will be programmed in at a later stage with the use of a high-level programming language such a C#."

comment Is “Did you it?” a valid question?
Tell her "syntax error, does not compute". Without a wild card character (! or * or ?) to take the place of action, complete, do, execute, follow or understand, it definitely makes no sense... ;-P

comment Suitable synonyms for “migrate”, “migrated” based upon the supplied context
@FumbleFingers -- the point of the question, for me, was to find likely synonyms and so far, jwpat7 has just about answered my query and I'll be marking that as the answer after a reasonable amount of time to let other people answer has passed.

@Hugo -- The sheer amount of effort you put into this...I sincerely hope Barry England won't think too poorly of me for re-allocating your answer as the answer. Thank you! :-)

comment Etymology of the word “stoolpigeon”
@TimLymington -- I guess so, I just found it to be an interesting word and wondered about its history; an informant / snitch which it also defines made me think it's a more polite way of saying someone is a sh_t bird. ;-)

comment Is the term 'String' too jargony to use in a user interface?
Depends a lot on what you expect the user to enter, for me; I'd sooner use sentence, snippet, summary or description. A max. length guide to the right or bottom of the field to further guide the user could even be added as an optional extra.
