MacKichan Software (external link) publishes Scientific Word and Scientific WorkPlace. Included with these products is a conversion program that will input RTF and output LaTeX. This conversion will correctly convert Microsoft Word Equation Editor or MathType equations in the RTF file to LaTeX. The conversion program is not available separately, but it is based on the free rtf2latex2e.

There is a "light" (and cheaper) version available called Scientific Notebook (external link), which is also capable of importing RTF and exporting (sort of) LaTeX. They also provide a free 30 day evaluation version.

History:

In 1994 the first Version of LaTeX2rtf was written by a group of students of the Viena University supervised by Ralf Schlatterbeck. They took up a LaTeX parser and added most of the functionality to the program. In 1995 work continued with a second group of students. The result was LaTeX2rtf Version 1.5.

Unfortunately, two different persons started further development of that program, not knowing of each other:

In 2001, Scott Prahl started to make some significant enhancements, also including many of Daniel's additions. He is still working on it. So this page is about Georg's and Scott's version. Latest stable release is 1.9.19 and includes all of the features of Daniel's version.

Temporarily I (Wilfried Hennings) feel responsible for coordinating the exchange of development information. But we are still seeking for a person who can act as coordinator of future development, and we also need a person to take over the development. Anyone feeling able to do that please contact me by email to texconvfaq "at" gmx.de.

We got a project initiated at sourceforge.net which aids in further development. Visit its homepage at http://latex2rtf.sourceforge.net/ (external link) or its project page at http://sourceforge.net/projects/latex2rtf/ (external link).
