14 How can i change a word document to tex? and vice-versa? (Microsoft Word - Macintosh application software)

Brian Jefferies of the University of New South Wales has
written the program RTF->TeX to convert files Word files saved in RTF
format into plain TeX files. RTF->TeX is less than robust. Among
other deficiencies it ignores paragraph and character formatting
and will not handle equations written with the Equation Editor
(though it will try to convert equations written in Word's built-in
formula setting language.) However RTF->TeX is a useful tool to
handle a lot of the grunt work of preprocessing documents before
finishing the conversion by hand. See

Erwin Wechtl and Alex Viskovatoff have written a similar though
less polished tool called rtf2LaTeX for converting RTF files to
LaTeX. See

Fernando Dorner and Andreas Granzer have written a UNIX
based program to go in the other direction. See

Design Science's MathType, the payware from which Word's
Equation Editor is derived can convert Equation Editor equations
into TeX (though it can't convert the rest of the document). Call
Design Science at (310) 433-0685 for ordering info.
