Hi all,

For those who don't know. There is a tool released recently as an Add-in to Microsoft Word (XP, 2003, & 2007) that allows opening and saving documents in ODF rather than the native Open XML format. The tool may also be plugged into OpenOffice that use ODF as default format.
Currently the tool only supports Word/Writer documents. Future releases will also serve Spreadsheet/Excel and Impress/Powerpoint formats.

This new tool/plug in is of special importance for professionals who work with different Document Formats, or whose clients provide one format while their tools support the other. In especially, the Open XML Translator allows professional translators and language service providers to use free and Open Source computer CAT tools like OmegaT together with OpenOffice.

You can download the OpenXML Translator (ODF Add-in for Word) here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/odf-converter

Another option for ODF, ODT conversion Apr 8, 2008

Here's another possibility:

Sun's ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office allows users of Microsoft's product to also open and save ODF (.odt, .ods, and .odp) files in the corresponding Microsoft application.
