Advanced File Conversion for Word

We accurately convert word processing as well as some spreadsheet and data base files from a very wide range of current and older applications to modern-day Microsoft Office, HTML, XML or even plain text. Suitable for straightforward as well as complex documents, it is the most accurate, complete and flexible such solution we know for Windows 95, 98, Me, XP, NT and 2000 documents.

[WordPerfect to Word]High-quality Conversion of WordPerfect files to Microsoft Word

The Word Convert Service is the ideal solution for converting complex and highly formatted WordPerfect documents to Microsoft Word, or even to file formats such as HTML or XML. We convert all DOS and Windows versions of WordPerfect (versions 4.0 through the latest Corel WordPerfect 12), with document text and most formatting, layout and graphics intact! These documents may be converted to any version of Microsoft Word 97 or higher, or to Microsoft Office XML, HTML or text. There is no better solution for converting large volumes of WordPerfect files ... WEd can convert a few files or several thousand, quickly.


Migrate from old word processors

We can convert from more than 75 older word processors and file formats (see list below) to a modern application such as Microsoft Office. These include popular legacy programs such as WordStar, Multimate, Leading Edge Word Processor, pfs: Professional Write, pfs: Write, pfs: First Choice, IBM Displaywrite, VolksWriter, Lotus Ami Pro, Lotus Manuscript, WordMarc Composer, Mass-11, Spellbinder, IBM Personal Typing System, Displaywrite Assistant, Samna Word, and many more. You may have thousands of documents created in one of these programs that has served you well over the years, but which does not work on modern computers. We enable you to bring decades of work into the modern era ... document text, formatting and layout all intact ... a few documents or several thousand! Your legacy documents are converted as if they were created in MS Word in the first place, and you can now process, edit, print and work with them on a modern platform.

What's more, you may even enhance these documents automatically as they are being converted. our customization options implemented through intuitive and easy-to-use tabbed dialog boxes let you control conversion parameters to enhance and fine-tune your documents. In addition, you can specify how to handle special conversion situations such as Dos fonts that are not directly available under Windows.

To put it succintly: we do not know of any better solution for converting from such a wide range of legacy or modern word processors.
