MS Word Conversion SDK

Our RasterMasterĀ® Conversion SDK allows you to build viewing, conversion and over 140 other expert imaging functions securely into your custom applications to support MS Word files. Conversion from MS Word is handled directly and rapidly by RasterMasterĀ®Ā without needing to invoke a print driver or another external application.

Text Extraction, Creating Searchable PDFs and Content Aggregation

One of RasterMasterā€™s powerful MS Word handling feature is its ability to extract text. This provides you with the capabilities to:

  • Convert files to fully-searchable PDF documents. Graphics, text, tables and more are maintained uniquely within the generated PDF for easy access by Adobe Acrobat or other PDF readers.
  • Create powerful content aggregation tools that streamline database population efforts by leveraging batch extraction of content and formatting data from Microsoft Word documents.

Word Conversion Solutions

Quickly and efficiently batch convert and standardize documents from MS Word to PDF for easy archiving and display.

MS Word Viewer

Our powerful VirtualViewerĀ® DocumentĀ Viewer enables you to view, convert, manipulate, annotate, redact, and print MS Word files through a standard Web browser.

*Additional Format Information:

AFP: Customize AFP Fonts For Optimal Display

All of our solutions support Font Maps for AFP allowing users to modify properties of their fonts including font type, point size, color, and style. Font maps enable companies to standardize how AFP documents display by overriding the internal font objects with custom fonts and styles. Fonts maps, created as simple ASCII files, ensure that documents display correctly and allow administrators to control the look of documents.

Important: Test Your Documents and Images

Avoid surprises and delays. Snowbound recommends that, as part of your evaluation process, you test your own sample documents against our products. Though we've been in the document business for 23 years, modifications to document formats occur from time to time. Additionally some documents are created that don't precisely conform to standards. We often can modify our products to handle them, but testing in advance will avoid surprises. Please also note that successfully testing one page of a document, or even a whole document, doesn't mean that other documents aren't created differently. For best outcomes, test as many documents as you can.

Snowbound, unlike most of our competitors, develops its own document rendering technology. If in the rare case you come across a problem or non-conforming document or image, we can often quickly fix it. Simply send us as many of the problem documents as you can.
