In high level languages we can write programs in English like manner and is more convenient to use. Programmer can perform complex task by using high level languages with less efforts. There are different high level languages such as FORTRAN (Formula Instructions), BASIC (Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code), COCOL (Common Business Oriented Language), PASCAL, C++, Visual Basic, VB. Net etc.

High level languages have many advantages. High level languages are very similar to nature language such as English so they are very easy to learn and use. For higher level languages programmers needs not to learn about internal structure of the computer. High level language programs require less time and efforts that due the preparation cost of the program.

High level programs are very easy to maintain than lower level languages. In lower level languages instruction are difficult and very hard to locate, correct and modify but in high level languages it is very easy to understand and modify when desired. In high level languages programmer needs not to write all steps because computer take cares of all small error. Compilers of high level languages automatically catch and point out the errors made by the programmers.

There are numerous advantages.Some are
1. User interpretation with low level language is difficult.(as written in the form 0's and 1's)
2.Tendency of error is less with high level language and debbuging is also easier compared to low level.
3.Length of the program is also small compared with low level
4.Many real time problems can be easily solved with high level.

Prefer Low level language under the following circumstances
1.small programs
2.when we require proto type as final product.

There are many technical advantages however to put it simple the main advantage of high level language is that you don't have to directly interact and program the machine in machine language which is in binary form plus one does not have to handle registers, memory addresses and call stacks.

The main advantage of high-level languages over low-level languages is that they are easier to read, write, and maintain. Ultimately, programs written in a high-level language must be translated into machine language by a compiler or interpreter. The first high-level programming languages were designed in the 1950s.

As I know, high-level languages are easier to work with for developers. But it's still hard to work with for people who are not familiar with software development. That's why I had to decide what was better Toptal or Upwork for hiring developers in order to get all my needs served. Since Upwork was better for short-term projects, I decided to look for specialists there.

Why C language is developed?
In 1970 two programmers, Brain Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie, created a new language called C. ( th name came about because C was preceded by the old programming language they were using called B.) C was designed with one goal in mind: Writing operating system. The language was extremely simple and flexible and soon was ued for many different types of programs.
