Writer2LaTeX provides Writer export filters for LaTeX and BibTeX.
This enables you to typeset your Writer documents with LaTeX, which does a better job typesetting text, in particular text with formulas.
Writer2LaTeX gives you extensive control over the export of formatting (using a configuration file). It can convert your document with as much formatting as possible preserved, or you can completely control the LaTeX code generated for each style in the source document – or even remove all formatting.
If you have trouble installing Writer2LaTeX, please have a look at the installation FAQ.
Version 0.4 of this extension is already included in some versions of OpenOffice.org (2.0.4-3.0). Install this version if you want to upgrade to the latest release.
For information about other features, documentation, source code and development releases see http://writer2latex.sourceforge.net
New: The current development release available from http://writer2latex.sourceforge.net now also includes an extension (Writer4LaTeX) that integrates OpenOffice.org with your TeX installation. You can thus call LaTeX and display the result directly from Writer.
Currently, the extension is available in Brazilian Portuguese, English, Czech, Danish, Dutch, German, Finnish, French, Polish, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Russian and Ukrainian. Thank you to the translators! If you want to translate it into your own language, please see the information on the project web site.
