[Micronet] LaTeX to Word doc Conversion

Beth Muramoto
I received this email from one of our faculty asking this question and I had no idea what to suggest to him.

Any help is most appreciated.

Beth


I'm looking for a service (on or off campus) I can use to take an existing LaTeX formatted paper and convert it to a Word doc in a particular journal's template. I'm parlaying a workshop paper (LaTeX) into an extended journal paper and am not interested in doing the conversion myself. I'll be using start-up funds to pay for it ($50-$300). Any recommendations?
Thanks

Re: [Micronet] LaTeX to Word doc Conversion

http://www.wordtolatex.com sounds like the sort of thing you are looking for (check out http://www.wordtolatex.com/upload), but in the other direction: Word-to-LaTeX.  I wonder if they might be able to do what you’re looking for, which is essentially the same thing, but in reverse…..

Googling for "latex to word converter” also turns up a bunch of other options.

Re: [Micronet] LaTeX to Word doc Conversion

Grantland Hall
In reply to this post by Ian Crew
It sounds as though the user particularly wants to convert a LaTeX document into the format of a provided Doc. I've never attempted anything like this, but my intuition is that the only way to do this would be to convert the latex to a word document and then copy-paste into the provided template. If internal formatting changes need to be made (e.g. formula label on left instead of right), Ian may actually have the right idea, which is to convert the template to LaTeX, copy just the content (without formatting) and then recompile.

Re: [Micronet] LaTeX to Word doc Conversion

Christopher Brooks
In reply to this post by Philip Weekly
Personally, I generate a PDF from LaTeX, then open the PDF in the full version of Adobe Acrobat and save as Word.  I then replace all the multiple spaces with single spaces and fix any hyphenation problems.  The figures will transfer, but sometimes they need to be re-imported.

I use this to use the MS Word grammar checker on LaTeX docs.  

Another way to is to go generate plain text and import that into a MS Word document that has the correct settings.  However the figures will not be included.

Re: [Micronet] LaTeX to Word doc Conversion

Graham Patterson
In reply to this post by Beth Muramoto

PanDoc (http://pandoc.org/) might do it (it has Berkeley roots, too!).
The problem is not so much converting the format as mapping the elements
in the new format. eg does a second level header map to Word's Header 2,
or do they use a different descriptor?

A commercial service, as opposed to an individual with the necessary
tools and copy editing skills, might be harder to find.
