We are happy to announce the first release of a free add-in that allows you to convert any document opened in Microsoft Word 2007 to EPUB.
Below are excerpts from the user’s guide that is included in the installer.
Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word is a free utility that allows converting any document opened in Microsoft Word 2007 to the EPUB format. Microsoft Word 2007 can load documents in many formats including DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML, ODT etc and you can now easily convert them all to EPUB using Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word.
About the EPUB format
EPUB is an XML-based distribution format for eBooks that is rapidly gaining adoption by publishers and distributors. EPUB is an open standard supported by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) organization. See also the Wikipedia article.
To Save as EPUB
After you install Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word, the EPUB format will be listed in the Save As dialog. Saving to EPUB is just as simple as saving to any other file format available in Microsoft Word.
1. Open any document in Microsoft Word.
2. From the Save As menu select “Aspose.Words – EPUB (*.epub)”, and then click Save.
How it Works
Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word is implemented using the following two technologies:
When installed, Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word registers itself as an Open XML Format External Converter and this makes Microsoft Word show EPUB as a new file format in the Save As dialog box.
When you select to save as EPUB, the following happens:
1. Microsoft Word saves the document in the OpenXML WordprocessingML format and sends it to Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word.
2. Aspose.Words for Microsoft Words is built on top of Aspose.Words for .NET, a class library for document conversion, generation, reporting and rendering. Aspose.Words for .NET loads the OpenXML document and converts it to the EPUB format.
To install and run Aspose.Words for Microsoft Word make sure you have the following software installed:
· .NET Framework 2.0 or newer
· Microsoft Office Word 2007 Service Pack 2
We provide free unlimited technical support in the Aspose.Words Support Forum. Please allow up to 24 hours for reply due to time zone differences.
