Import from Word - overview
CKEditor Cloud Services offer a fast and highly scalable service enabling the user to import the content from Microsoft Word to HTML. The feature is available as a service, making it possible to send the Word file straight into the Cloud Services server or use it directly with CKEditor 5 WYSIWYG editor plugin that integrates the feature out of the box.
The DOCX to HTML converter provides a REST API for converting Microsoft Word files to HTML documents. The service generates HTML data and returns it to the API consumer, allowing it to display it in the browser or inside a CKEditor 5 instance. It can be used to automate the conversion of Word files and allows for mass document conversion with the omission of the editor.
This import from Word feature is available both as an editor plugin and as a service endpoint. There is also the on-premises version available.
The import from Word service can be used in two different ways:
- A plugin for CKEditor 5 WYSIWYG editors, so that your end-users could import Word documents straight into the editor. An appropriate plugin needs to be added to your editor build; this is not pre-bundled.
- REST service to convert DOCX to HTML using the API, for example, allowing your application to batch convert files from file storage.
You can read more about it and see the demo on the Import from Word product page.
