Import from Word

Quickly import any amount of Word documents to CKEditor 5 or other editors

Import from Word is a new premium plugin, allowing for converting any number of DOCX documents into HTML, and editing them later with CKEditor. Fully unique - unavailable in any other rich text editor in the market.

The best in-class and battle-tested

  • Supports Comments and Track Changes features with text suggestions (formatting suggestions coming soon)
  • Verified on thousands of real documents gathered over the last 15+ years
  • Preserves 99% of the Word styling
  • Fully compatible with CKEditor 5

High-performer with top quality HTML

  • Supports DOCX (Word) and DOTX (Word Template) file formats
  • Unlike most popular converters, produces high quality semantic HTML from the not-so-perfect DOCX structure
  • Converting large documents in less than a second
  • Document migration can be entirely done on the backend thanks to REST API

Customizable to your needs

You may choose to preserve full Word styling or just the content semantics

All Word styles preserved

For users who need to edit Word documents in a browser and would like to preserve as much styling as possible. Allows for an editing experience similar to Microsoft Word.

Content semantics only

For users who would like to preserve content semantics (e.g. text highlights) but at the same time continue using styling consistent with their corporate style guide (e.g. font size and family).

The dedicated CKEditor 5 plugin allows for converting HTML to DOCX with a simple click of a toolbar button, preserving advanced features like Track Changes and many more.
