I agree that PDF-to-LaTeX conversion is more likely to be successful  
than *TeX-to-Word.

If you are looking for a PDF-to-LaTeX conversion tool, of those I have  
tried, Acrobat has proven the most effective for me, but it is a year  
or two since I tried any others. But my documents contain somewhat  
complicated linguistic formatting, not math, so my experience may not  
be particularly relevant. In any case, I have always had to do some  
final formatting by hand.
