You mean, you want it converted from Quark to Publisher? I doubt very much if such a tool exists. DTP tools are notorious for not supporting each other's formats. Your best bet may be a night-long copy/paste job.

Copy and paste May 12, 2009

Yes that is exactly what I meant. Okay, right for now I will do it manually but I am facing problems in pictures and autoshape format, would you please help?
Thanks in advance.

That can take some time May 12, 2009

Reproducing layouts from one format to another can take a while. QuarkXPress is a much more powerful tool than MS Publisher, so some of the Quark elements would have to be tweaked and simplified for MS Publisher. If you don't know how to do it yourself, you could hire a DTP editor, just make sure your client is paying for it. DTP editing is not part of the translation--usually QuarkXPress, InDesign, etc, translations pay more per word because there's always some minor DTP editing involved, but heavy editing should be charged separately.

Good luck,

Claudia

Thank you May 12, 2009

Thank you all, I handle it. I mainly was looking for a helping tool instead of copying and past.
Again thank you so very much.
