I've been a pretty heavy Ms Word Math user and usually I just do all my work in there and export as PDFs (people can barely tell the difference). I heard also that LaTeX is converted into a PDF which has me curious if there is a way to take a starting PDF or Ms Word Math Doc and convert it to LaTeX or prefarably MathJax (for use in this site).

  • $\begingroup$ I found a MS Word to Latex Converter online... so now the question of MathJax is all that remains $\endgroup$ – frogeyedpeas May 2 '13 at 22:06

    $\begingroup$ Would you care to share which converter you found? Answer your question and accept it :-) $\endgroup$ – robjohn May 2 '13 at 22:36
  • $\begingroup$ These questions are somewhat related (but not exactly the same): I want to convert equations from Word to Latex and Openoffice formula into math.stackexchange post. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak May 3 '13 at 9:28

    $\begingroup$ And you can also try to have a look at TeX.SE; for example in the questions mentioned here. Or you could simply browse the questions tagged as msword. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak May 3 '13 at 9:32
  • $\begingroup$ I voted to close since this doesn't belong in Meta. Meta is for questions about that math.stackexchange website. I think it would be better off on the main site, where it would be on topic as part of "software that mathematicians use" $\endgroup$ – Tom Oldfield May 4 '13 at 9:39

Here are some options to convert equations in MS Word to mathjax:

  • It is possible to copy word equations to mathematica. In mathematica you can export expression to latex.
  • If you use Mathtype equation editor in word, you have an option to export it as latex.

There is an option in MS Word to export math equations to mathml. I think MSE doesn't allow mathml as input for mathjax. Is there a reason fo this?

The current source code is:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS_HTML"></script>

To support mathml input, I think you only need this:

<script type="text/javascript"  src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML">
