Convertex is a program for the conversion of foreign language texts in RTF or in TXT format from PC to Mac and vice versa.


The program allows for forward and backward conversion between RTF files or simple text files for MAC and PC.
Usually this conversion is done automatically by the application programs themselves and supported as a "save as" option. Unfortunately this works for most programs only in the case that Latin fonts with the standard Western codepage (Latin 1) are used.
Convertex is able to convert an RTF file or a TXT file which has been produced on one platform with an arbitrary codepage (for example West European character set, East European character set or Greek character set) into an RTF file or a text file which can be used on the other platform with the font belonging to the same codepage. When using RTF files, formatting information is conserved. Simple text files do not allow for the transference of formatting information in this way, but this is very often a small tradeoff compared to re-writing the entire document.
Please note that the program treats all files as simple text files unless an RTF-specific string is found in the file header.
