# 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.

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}.
