The goal for the ODF Add-in for Microsoft Office is to provide an Add-in to Microsoft Word to allow opening and saving OpenDocument format (ODF) files.
The converter is based on XSL transformations between two XML formats, along with some pre- and post-processing to manage the packaging (zip / unzip), schema incompatibility processings and the integration into Microsoft Word. We chose to use an Open Source development model that will allow developers from all around the globe to participate and contribute to this project.
Along with the Add-in for Microsoft Office, we also provide a command line translator that allows doing batch conversions. This translator could also be run on the server side for certain scenarios.
