Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your EPUB files and convert them to OpenOffice ODT 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 OpenOffice ODT
Having office files in a proprietary format is a big risk, that you should avoid. Thanks to OpenOffice it’s not even hard to do. With the OpenOffice ODT format we’ve got an open format, that is based on other open formats. Every ODT file is a Zip file, that contains at least a content.xml (an XML file) with the — you might have guessed it already - the content. You can open the XML file in the program of your liking, update the content and re-open it in your office program without worrying to break the file. This enables you to interact with your office files through code. And even more important, you can be pretty sure there will always be software to open and edit those files. That’s a big plus, isn’t it?The files end with
.odt by default.
