Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your EPUB files and convert them to LaTeX files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from EPUB
EPUB is an e-book file format that is actually based on a ton of other formats like XML, XHTML, DTBook, SVG, CSS, NCX (What the hell is this?), Dublin Core (sounds bad ass) and Zip. Oh man, I’m not sure if there is a text format that is a combination of more formats than EPUB. It’s like someone tried to combine every fricking format out there. Couldn’t they stick with fewer file formats? Anyway, we have this free online converter here. Not sure if it works, but just upload your file and we’ll see what we can do. I have to google if there is a book about EPUB. This history of the greatest text format of all times. Or something like that.
The files end with
.epub by default.
Converting to LaTeX
LaTeX was developed in 1984 and no, that’s not a typo. It’s nearly 40 years old. It started as a writing tool for mathematicians and computer scientists, but has quickly been taken up by scholars who wanted to write documents with math expressions or non-Latin scripts (Arabic or Chinese for example). As with a lot of other text document formats, it’s used to structure the content, not style it. LaTeX is used directly or as an intermediate format to produce files for printing or digital distribution. It supports highlighting (such as bold or italic), citations and cross-references. Or to make it short: It’s the most powerful format to structure your texts. Convert all your files to LaTeX.The files end with
