Command Line

The only online Word to HTML converter powered by BuildVu.

Microsoft Word is a very common file format for documents. For just showing Word documents in a SaaS application or browser, HTML is a much simpler choice because the user does not need to use additional software or to leave the application.

The Online Word to HTML converter is a free online service to convert single Microsoft Word documents into standalone HTML content. It makes use of LibreOffice (the free office suite which can also be run on a server) to convert Microsoft Word to PDF. BuildVu then converts the PDF file to HTML. This produces much better HTML files than outputting directly from LibreOffice to an HTML file.

BuildVu is designed for customers who want to convert many Microsoft Word documents to HTML automatically as part of their usage.

BuildVu is a Java application which can be run from any Computer language as a simple standalone function or accessed via a micro-service. It runs on both customer cloud or on-premise servers

BuildVu includes a large number of optimisations not in the free online converter, including the ability process lots of documents, simple integration with LibreOffice and much more control over the conversion process.
