Produce & Publish DOCX Importer

Produce & Publish supports the import and conversion of Office documents (primarily Microsoft Word DOCX Format) whilst retaining the most important layout features such as tables, structure and linkage with style sheets.


  • Conversion of DOCX (DOC) to HTML/XHTML (XML, Docbook DTD upon request)
  • Retention of
    • the document structure
    • the most important formatting aspects (bold, italics, colours)
    • tables
    • hyperlinks
  • Integration via a web service interface
  • Integration with the Produce & Publish conversion server

The DOCX converter is modularly structured and runs various backend processes for conversion. In the free version the conversion takes place with the aid of OpenOffice or LibreOffice. In most cases this solution is sufficient for importing Word documents cleanly into a CMS.  For more demanding conversions and sophisticated client requirements we can, if necessary, connect Produce & Publish with commerical converters or other external conversion services.  In doing so, we cooperate with partner firms who have a long history of specialisation in the corresponding service and work with us on an as-needed basis according to the specifications of the project at hand.


  • free (XHTML/HTML)
  • On request (XML, Docbook DTD)

The product SmartPrintNG (now "Produce & Publish") is very suitable for our purposes due its flexiable configuration options. Andreas Jung gave a hands-on-training and communicate the relevant know-how in order to work effectively with SmartPrintNG (even for non-technical people like teachers).
