Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your OpenOffice ODT files and convert them to MultiMarkdown files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from 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.
Converting to MultiMarkdown
Markdown is amazing, and MultiMarkdown is a multitude of amazing. It’s like the original Markdown but enriched with more features (tables, footnotes, citations …). It helps to keep your text structured with minimally marked-up plain text, like other Markdown flavors too. It’s great to convert it to PDF, HTML and LaTeX or other formats. People even use it to write books and stuff. I have no idea what’s different to other formats, but if you’re here you probably have some MultiMarkdown files and want to convert them. Or you really need those MultiMarkdown files but have other source files, both ways work here. Upload your file and convert it. To be honest, I prefer the GitHub flavor, but that’s just me. (Don’t trust me, I’m the lonely soul writing those texts here.)The files end with
.mmdby default. More about MultiMarkdown files
