# Convert a PDF/Word title page to TEX file

Is there any way I can convert a PDF containing a title page like the following into a working TEX file?

I have tried different converters like AbiWord or Grindeq, but the result never works properly. I could also use a Word to TEX converter if the result was really accurate. In this case, format is important, as the result has to be identical to the PDF shown.

• So, you want to include this PDF into an existing tex file, but you need to change the contents of the PDF (like title, name etc)? – Jasper Habicht Jun 6 '18 at 16:55
• Yes. I would like to make a tex file where I can change those fields and results in that format. It is for a thesis. – Daniel Díez Jun 6 '18 at 16:59
• you should be able to get vector or high resolution versions of the two images from your institution, and after that it's just a simple page of centred text, so conversion from Word (or anything) is likely just to produce an over-complicated result. – David Carlisle Jun 6 '18 at 17:06
• Can't the institute / tutor provide a template for the title page. – albert Jun 6 '18 at 17:21
• Use Word to create the title page you want and output to PDF. Then include the PDF as a graphic in your TeX file – Peter Wilson Jun 6 '18 at 18:18

The layout of the page isn't sophisticated. There are many ways to do that with LaTeX. To put the logos to the right place, take a ruler and measure the distance from the margin and then use the package eso-pic and two \put commands. Insert the lines using \vspace for exact distances. If you are in trouble, ask a new question and provide an MWE.
