For my resume I use AltaCV format. I normally convert latex template to pdf, however this time possible employer requires editable format, specifically docx, rtf or odt. I'm happy with my current latex template so I would very much like to avoid necessity to search for a new one in other editor.

I tried using latex2rtf, however it doesn't seem to correctly process more complicated, multi-file resumes.

Is it possible to use latex2rtf to convert this resume template? Or is there some other way to convert to editable format?

  • You could try Pandoc, it converts to many formats among which docx and odt.

Maybe try using PDF to Word converters. I tried iLovePDF's converter with an AltaCV example PDF and the results were not bad:

You could use this as an starting point and fine-tune it as you like. Maybe there's a better converter. I've tried Word's and Google Doc's converter and the results were janky.

  • This worked way better than I expected, barely anything to correct after conversion. Thanks
