Main Question or Discussion Point
Where can I find TEX or LaTEX converters (from TEX language to a Word file)?
not really. the latest versions of texlive (versions for windows and max os X) are quite easy to install and maintain. It may take more time to get output from them than it does from a word processor, but that's because with latex you need to think about how you want material organized, and what you want to say, while in word (as an example: you could also say open office or others) you can get output almost immediately. of course, getting output that looks reasonable (let alone nice) is more difficult. the amount of time I've spent setting up "styles" for consistency in word does not differ significantly from the time spent learning the syntax and methods of latex.Are there any converters that DON'T require a degree in computer engineering to use? These programs are incredibly obtuse and difficult to install and operate.
