Document conversion

Document conversion

Document conversion is the act of converting one document's format to another, which allows the document to be read in many more applications. Documents can be converted into

  • other source document formats
  • consumer formats
  • structured data

How it works

The conversion of the file is usually done by the application that it was created with, though there are also various third-party tools to perform it. Most file formats can be disassembled with a hex editor. Alternatively conversions can be automatically provided by Web services that connect to a document storage or delivery system - such as file directory or a document / content management applications. The content transformation services can run on a local server, in the Web or in the cloud. Conversion tools can be also combined with a delivery component - that publishes converted data into a database, filesystem or other systems.

Examples

Paper documents conversion

The task of converting scanned paper documents to useful electronic formats is one of the most important applications for document conversion. Documents, scanned to image formats have lots of limitations such as large file size, impossibility of context search and content reuse. So they should be converting to more useful formats:

  • Searchable: PDF
  • Archive: PDF/A – for the long-term storage
  • Compressed: MRC-PDF
  • Editable: TXT, RTF, DOC, XLS, PPT
  • Structured: XML, HTML

Content extraction from the document image is the task of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) or Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) technologies. Modern OCR applications convert image files to different document formats with saving not just content but also the structure of document (ADRT).
