I don't even know of a good converter between VBA and VB.NET. There are too many things to consider for a converter to do a good job. Even the converter between VB6 and VB.NET is a mess, although there are more similitudes between VB6 and VB.NET than there are between VBA and VB.NET.

 So asking to completely change the language to C#... Good luck.

The only good converter is the programmer who has experience of both, and know about the potential problems of working with Excel from .NET.

Sorry, that is not the answer you expected, but this is the best one... in my humble opinion.

I do agree with James and Bob. I did some work like that in the past and it was a challenge as some of the VBA constructs are different and the VBA code was copy/paste/spaghetti all over the place- not to mention the VBA code state. You are better off either your team doing it and contracting someone else to do it for you.
The VBA code tends to be messy especially if power users wrote it. Even it is possible to use a converter, are you sure you want to maintain that generated C# code?
Rewrite will require grab the original requirements or build some requirements as well as having the VBA code to verify that this works as advertised or in case you find some magic constants floating around.
