Newbie - which language to use?

Hi, I'm a newcomer to programming, and want to produce a simple word processing program. I want to be able to set up keyboard shortcuts for the word processor, like Alt+S for 'save', etc.
I did learn BASIC about thirty years ago, but have forgotten all of it. Can anybody tell me if I should go with BASIC or some other language? I want to eventually be able to produce an add on for Microsoft Office, which gets rid of the 'Ribbon' and brings back the old menu system.
I don't mind which language I learn, I just want to make sure I pick the right one to begin with.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.
