Our mission

Zamzar is dedicated to helping you transform your songs, videos, images and documents into different formats. Our mission is:

"To provide high quality file conversion for as many file formats as possible"

We are intent on bringing order to your filesystem by offering you a one stop solution for all your file conversion needs. Like others we were fed up with having files in all sorts of formats, and no easy way of converting between them - the quest to find a better way led to the birth of Zamzar.

What's in a name?


The name "Zamzar" is based on a character from the Bohemian author Franz Kafka's book "The Metamorphosis". In the novel Kafka describes the extraordinary story of a young man who is transformed whilst sleeping into a gigantic insect.

The man's name - Gregor Samsa - was used as the basis for our company name because of its powerful association with change and transformation.
