Of course "there's a way" some of its system programming, using windows APIs called from Delphi, some of its just UI design, which Delphi is fantastic for.

How is a different matter I'm afraid. There's no "right" way. You need to be VERY familiar with the language first. I always have Marco Cantu's books to hand when I am working inside the language in areas I haven't been before.

It helps to write a really good VERBAL description of the program, and then start to write a more detailed description in words that start to look like the language.
