Workflow for converting LaTeX into Open Office / MS Word Format
I am making a book using
memoir and I am planning to try a proof reading service that uses Word. Does anyone have experience with such a set up, how would I go about doing it?
I suppose it would be two main issues:
- Conversion to Word
- I have heard about tools for converting from pdf to Word. Is this a good idea? Should I do something special with the pdf before attempting such a tool (at least I guess removing the trim frames is a must?) and is there such a tool that does a better job than any other? Will they handle images?
- There are probably scripts for going from tex source to RTF but how well are they at handling references and bibliographies? And which one would be best for preparing a proof reading base?
- Conversion from Word
- I suppose I will have to this manual by adding each change to my source files one at a time. Or can anyone think of something else?
I realise this looks like many questions but what I am hoping for is that someone can share their thoughts on it or even better their experiences!
