Converting .doc files to .pub (Publisher)?

Does anyone know how you can convert Word files to Publisher? We had a lot of publisher files which we managed to convert into Microsoft Word, but we now need to know that - once the text is translated - how it would be possible to convert the file back into Publisher.

Does anyone have any hints or tips? Any info appreciated.

I wouldn't have though the reverse conversion would be possible, or indeed logical.

It's a very long time since I last used Publisher, but most DTP programmes require you to in some way 'import' text from your document, rather than simply convert the file.

I suppose you could try creating a new publisher document, then simply importing your Word doc into that, but I guess you'll still have a certain amout of formatting work to do manually.

You would simply create a new file in Publisher, go to File>Import Word document, and this is it.

You can save the resulting document as .pub (and other DTP formats, too)
