Is there any TeX to Word plugin to be added for free in Microsoft Word?

The main reason behind this is that I want to use the easy to use grammar checker of Microsoft Word after writing my article in LyX/LaTeX.

I know there are some grammar checker in LaTeX. But they list a long and non-important grammatical errors which takes a lot of time to change. Instead, Word shows it in a more user-friendly way.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Is the purpose to have the final document in Word format? If not, you could first write your document in Word (without taking care of formatting, just plain text), grammar-check it in Word, and then copy the text into LyX, and finally do the final formatting. – Alexis Pigeon May 22 '12 at 11:21

Yes. You are right. I was just wondering if there is any package for doing the tex2word convertion. I can also convert it to .odt file then convert that format to docx :) – user14857 May 22 '12 at 14:33

You can use TeX4ht to convert it to ODF. The command is thus:

htlatex filename "xhtml,ooffice" "ooffice/! -cmozhtf" "-coo -cvalidate"

See the documentation of TeX4ht here: http://tug.org/applications/tex4ht/mn-commands.html#QQ1-9-38

Then you can use any ODF-compatible word processor (LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and even MsWord) to convert it to .doc or .docx.
