ODT Document Format

ODT Converter

An ODT file is also called an OpenDocument Text file, and this format was developed by OASIS (the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards). ODT is an open-source XML-based file format used for creating, editing and sharing documents such as reports, presentations, letters and spreadsheets - and is very similar to the DOCX file format. ODT files support a range of features and fonts, and can store documents at a compressed size.

ODT files can be opened and edited in any XML-based application, including OpenOffice and LibreOffice, as well as Google Docs, WordPad, and Notepad. The main disadvantage of this file format is that it is not compatible with all versions of Microsoft Office, so if you have an incompatible software version you may find it difficult to open and edit ODT files on your device.

DOC Document Format

DOC Converter

DOC and DOCX are the most common word processing file formats. DOC was primarily used by Microsoft for its Word program until 2003. Since 2007, Word has used DOCX as standard, although you can still open DOC files and can still save to the older format. DOC and DOCX are used for formatted text documents like reports, letters or resumes. They can include pictures, charts, and graphs, as well as plain or formatted text, and can also contain an editable template.

Word is part of Microsoft Office, which is available as a paid software application or accessed online with a Microsoft 365 subscription. Microsoft Office was designed for the Windows operating system, but you can also install Office apps on other operating systems like Apple’s macOS and Google’s ChromeOS. A basic free ‘Word for the web’ program is also available online for Microsoft account holders. DOC files are easy to share and print, and can be opened by most word processing programs, including LibreOffice, Apple Pages, and Google Docs, as well as by Microsoft Word.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

It’s simple to convert ODT to DOC using file conversion tools like Zamzar, or with word processing programs like Word, OpenOffice or LibreOffice. Zamzar can convert files in real time in just a few clicks – upload your ODT files, select to convert them to DOC and then download the new copies of your files.

If you just need to convert one document, you should be able to open that with most word processing programs and then choose DOC format from the ‘Save As’ dropdown options.

ODT and DOC are different file formats. DOC files are designed for Microsoft Word, while ODT files are often created with free open-source word processing programs like OpenOffice or LibreOffice. Most ODT files should open in Word, but you can also convert them with Zamzar or another file converter. Just upload an ODT file to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, select to convert it to DOC and then download the file when it’s converted.

You should be able to open your ODT file in Word by clicking ‘File’, ‘Open’ and then selecting your ODT file. Once you’ve opened the file, you can then save it as a DOC or DOCX file. If you have more than one ODT file you’d like to convert to Word format, or are using a device without a word processing program, you can use file conversion tools like Zamzar to convert your ODT files.

Simply upload one or more ODT files to the secure tool on Zamzar’s website, click to convert them into DOC or DOCX format and then download the new Word documents.

ODT files will open in most open-source word processing programs, and also with Microsoft Word. Using the ‘Save As’ function, you can then usually choose whether to save it as an ODT, DOC or DOCX file.

However, another way of converting files without opening them is to use an online or app-based file converter like Zamzar. Simply upload one or more ODT files to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, select the format you want to convert them to, and then download your converted files.

Zamzar’s online tool is a fast way to convert ODT to Word for free. Simply upload your ODT file, select to convert it to DOC or DOCX and then download the new files. You can also install free open-source word processors like LibreOffice on your device and then use these to open ODT files and save them into Word format. However, the advantage of using sites like Zamzar is that you can convert files for free without installing anything extra.
