Word to DITA Conversion

As you probably know, any conversion from MS Word to DITA is based on styles.

This means that you have to specify to which DITA element each of your styles in the MS Word document should be converted. As long as your MS Word document is consistently formatted and does not contain any manual ad hoc formatting, you can use traditional Word-to-DITA conversion tools available on the market.

However, if the MS Word document includes manual formatting or inconsistently used and re-defined styles, the conversion process can become a nightmare. Depending on the amount of misused styles and manual formatting, you may need to spend tens of hours trying to cleanup the document.

We’ve developed a know-how that allows us to smoothly convert even unstyled MS Word documents to a valid DITA. This is one of the features available in DITAToo (see a video that shows how DITAToo automatically converts an MS Word document to DITA).

But if you are not looking for a DITA CMS, we can still help you by providing MS Word to DITA conversion as a service! Since we have the technology and tools, we can use them to convert your legacy content from MS Word to DITA. Moreover, if you have any special requirements that cannot be handled by our tools out-of-the-box, we’ll be happy to develop a custom solution for you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for details at info@intuillion.com, and we’ll be glad to discuss your conversion requirements!
