There's a difference between rewriting and translating. It sounds like a minor distinction but it is not.
If the goal is simply to move from language A to B because A is not supported/secure/etc. anymore, then translate and run with it.
From a business process POV however, that is the cheaper solution but also a waste of resources for the client. The PM/SA should have done the required analysis and reviewed the processes with the client. It is expensive but at the end of the day, the client could get an enormous value add rather than a translation. Rewrites need to look beyond the codebase behind the system and utilize current technology to create or improve the client's operation as well.
I know there are valid reasons to go from "A" to "B", but personally I wouldn't take it on as I learned several years ago to listen to myself and that often the client/users don't know what's best.
