Workflow for converting LaTeX into Open Office / MS Word Format

sorry, this can be a stupid question... My teacher wants a .doc file and I wrote my work in LaTeX. Is it possible to export a .tex format file to a .doc one? (Without the copy-paste method obviously)

  • Can you persuade your teacher to accept pdf? If not, you can try googling pdf2doc. You will find several free converters which may work well enough on output from pdflatex. – Ethan Bolker Jan 9 '13 at 16:37
  • Pandoc can translate directly form tex to doc and for simple documents it seems to work reasonably fine. – Guido Jan 9 '13 at 16:44

You could convert TeX to RTF, and then from RTF to .doc: http://latex2rtf.sourceforge.net/

TeX4HT can also convert to ODT, which might be a better solution, still.

There are several additional ways (to post by Raphink). There is GrindEQ (commercial), TeX2Word (Shareware), another TeX2Word (free)

it depends to the complexity of your TeX document. If you have a lot of equations and images with subcaptions you will have a lot of trouble with your conversion. Install a trialversion of TeX2Word and try it. On the other hand it makes often more sense to convert the created pdf file into a doc format, eg by http://convertpdftoword.net/
