Converters between LaTeX and PC Textprocessors

I am experiencing that I have practically no time to keep these pages up to date so I'd like to retreat from this.
I would be glad if someone else would take over this task. I would then transfer the copyright to her/him.

(The copyright only serves two objectives:
– to prevent anyone from claiming the copyright for himself and thus preventing the original author from continuing her/his work,
– to achieve that the author is been informed about any incorrect or missing information.)

The main list is divided into two parts:

Converters from LaTeX to PC textprocessors

Converters from PC textprocessors to LaTeX

Please also read the copyright and the disclaimer

You can also download the whole set of www pages in a zip file. It is also available from CTAN (directory .../help/wp-conv/).

CTAN is "The Comprehensive TeX Archive Network". It consists of two primary hosts and many mirrors.
To reduce load on the primary hosts, the following link where you find the converters uses the generic "mirror" address which resolves to one of the mirror hosts:

The primary CTAN hosts – which also allow uploading – are the German and the British:
Der deutsche CTAN Server (The German CTAN server - external link)
The British CTAN server (external link)

It is also possible to order CD-ROM(s) from CTAN with the CTAN contents –
