- Open the Word document in MS Office, select all the content, and copy it.
- Open Oxygen and create a new DITA topic in the Author visual editing mode.
- Paste the selected content. Oxygen's smart paste functionality will attempt to convert the content to DITA.
- Save your MS Office Word document as HTML.
- Once you obtain that HTML,
you have two possibilities:
- In Oxygen, Select File->Import->HTML File to import the HTML as XHTML. Then open the XHTML in Oxygen and in the "Transformation Scenarios" view there should be four pre-configured transformation scenarios to convert XHTML to DITA topics, tasks, references, or concepts.
- Open the HTML file in any Web browser, select all of its content, and copy it. Then open Oxygen, create a new DITA topic in the Author visual editing mode, and paste the selected content. Oxygen's smart paste functionality will attempt to convert the HTML to DITA.
- Open the Word document in the free Libre Office application and save it as DocBook.
- Open the DocBook document in Oxygen.
- Run the predefined transformation scenario called DocBook to DITA.
- If the Word document is in the new DOCX format you can open it in Oxygen's Archive Browser view and then open the document.xml file contained in the archive.
- Run the predefined transformation scenario called DOCX DITA. This ANT scenario runs the following build file: OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT/plugins/net.sourceforge.dita4publishers.word2dita/build-word2dita.xml over the DOCX archive and should produce a DITA project that contains a DITA map and multiple topics.
- You may need to do some reconfiguring to map DOCX styles to DITA content.
