To convert a Word document to Wiki

When you copy and paste from Word you get a lot of unnecessary formating code. It is easier to do it from OpenOffice.

ta charset="utf-8" />

Best way is to use Open Office

  1. Open the Word document in Open Office Writer.
  2. Go to File / Export.
  3. Under File format choose MediaWiki (.txt).
  4. Click Save (or Export).
  5. Open the new file in a text editor and copy the contents to the clipboard.
  6. Paste the text to a Wikipedia article.
