Converting a MSWord document

On Conversions
This section was removed from the main page since BookCreator 2.5 now contains eBook creation from the GUI. However these methods are still possible and may yield better results for complicated Word documents.

This program is designed solely for creating MSWord documents. The idea is to use other Book Conversions out there to create the target formatn. So any that creates an eBook from an MSWord file can be used by this tool.

Iíve had great success with the following tools

MobiReader /Sony Connect: Both these tools automatically convert the MS Word document to a supported format, there is no manual process. Simply importing the document to the application and it will automatically be converted. SONY Connect converts MSWord file to an RTF. While MobiReader converts the MSWord to Mobi.

MobiCreator: has a great conversion program that allows users to create professional MOBI files.

WordRMR: is a free Word Plugin that creates a LIT file from a MSWord file. See section below for more detail.

Calibre: While Calibre does not convert from MSWord, it can convert RTF, HTML, and LIT files easily, which are formats that MSWord easily exports to.

Lit2sb: Once a LIT file is created from the WordRMR plugin, drop the lit file on this program and it will easily churn an IMP file.

While I cannot think of any eBook reader out there except Windows Mobile PDA/Phones that support LIT files naively. Every eBook format has a decent LIT conversion tool out there. These programs also do a great job converting LIT to YOUR eBOOK FORMAT. Iíve tested different tools like LIT2MOBI, LIT2IMP, LIT2LRF with great success..

The WordRMR plugin by Microsoft allows for hte creation of LIT eBooks with just one button click.

Once this file is created, you can use your favorite lit conversion programs. If there is any question as to what conversion programs exist feel free to post here.
