Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your Word files and convert them to original unextended Markdown files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from Word
Not sure if the world would be a better place without Microsoft Word, but I guess we’ll never find out. It’s here and it’s here to stay. Every fricking office computer has Word on it. Techies hate it, because it’s not really machine-readable, it’s proprietary and there is no documented standard. Office people love it though. There are not limits. Put text in it, fine. Add images, no problem. Want to switch the font to Comic Sans? Sure! Make a creative layout, amazing! Do whatever you like. But don’t forget to convert it to a proper file format before you send it to a techie.
The files end with
.docx by default.
Converting to original unextended Markdown
The original unextended Markdown is based on the syntax outlined in John Gruber’s original design document. It already has many elements, but missed features like tables, code blocks, syntax highlighting, URL auto-linking and footnotes. Things that most of us take for granted today. I don’t know why anyone would stick with the original Markdown format, but I guess it’s something for purists. Or maybe you have a legacy system that only supports the original Markdown format. Anyway, have fun and convert to or from the strict version, the original Markdown format. We are happy to support the free conversion from and to it.The files end with
.mdby default. More about original unextended Markdown files
