How-to Convert MathType Equations and Microsoft Word Equations to LaTeX

Among other things, Word-to-LaTeX can be used to convert math expressions and equations of different kinds to LaTeX (or MathML if you prefer XML output). Let us convert a short sample document containing both MathType and Microsoft Word equations.

The converting capabilities of Word-to-LaTeX are illustrated on a numbered MathType equation, a few inline MathType expressions, one inline Word equation, and one displayed Word equation.

Input MathType and Microsoft Word Equations

To convert the equations (along with the whole document), press the Convert button on the Word-to-LaTeX tab. After the main Word-to-LaTeX windows appears, just press the new Convert button again and wait a few seconds.

Below you can see the LaTeX output produced by the converter. All equations have been correctly transformed and you can paste them in any LaTeX document.

\begin{equation}
y(n) = \sum\limits_{i = 0}^{K - 1} {\alpha _{}^i(n){s^i}(n) + {w^{}}(n)} \,;\;n
= 0,1, \ldots ,N - 1
\label{eq1}

\end{equation}

Where $\alpha _{}^i(n)$ is a complex channel coefficient between transmit
antenna \textit{i} and the receive antenna and ${w^{}}(n)$ is additive white
Gaussian noise for the subcarrier \textit{n}.
