If you are just replacing words, like "your" with "thine" and "doe with "doest", then I'd suggest just using the Replace All Words feature in MS Word.

Instead of does, use doth. Hath instead of has, the word methink instead of I think, etc. Reading just a bit of Shakespeare should get you in the swing from there. A servant was a varlet back then. For a glossary which I think you will find really helpful, go to http://www.shakespeareswords.com/Glossary.aspx
