Does Word's equation editor support exporting their code to LaTeX? I am not sure it would but I don't use Word. – dustin Aug 21 '13 at 12:51
I'm not sure about it, while searching over internet, found one url : ex-ample.blogspot.in/2012/06/… ; it seems there are some tools using which conversion is possible. Still checking to see if there are any simpler options. – Pawan Mude Aug 21 '13 at 13:00
This question appears to be off-topic because it belongs more to superuser.SX – Kurt Aug 21 '13 at 13:01
@KevinC Oh yes, sorry I'd missed that :-) Point stands though that my feeling is this one is off-topic as it's about the Word GUI. – Joseph Wright Aug 21 '13 at 13:16

I do not think that this is possible with MS Equation Editor 3.0. But it is possible with MathType (a commercial software product, Link).

I made a LaTeX introduction in German - here are the relevant slides:

Thanks Manuel, I've used MathType in the past. Today received one MS document where symbols and formule are entered using MS Equation Editor, So checking if similar output is possible to get directly from equation editor 3.0 – Pawan Mude Aug 21 '13 at 13:26
I see. Maybe you can use MathType to open the document and then convert the equations. There's a 30 days trial version available. – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Aug 21 '13 at 13:29
Thanks Manuel ; i've installed trial version and using same. – Pawan Mude Aug 24 '13 at 14:10
