How to Convert Word to FB2 – 5 Ways

How to Convert Word to FB2. When working with text documents, users are faced with the need to convert Word files to FB2. In Microsoft Word, it will not be possible to directly save a Word file to FB2, because the popular test editor does not support files of this format.

A large number of documents are created in the office program MS Word, which are saved in files with the extensions “.doc” and “.docx”. Reading files in Word format is not always convenient on, for example, mobile devices due to formatting features.

The FB2 format (FictionBook or FeedBook) saves e-books that can be read on any device if you have a program designed to open files of this type. Files in FB2 format are equally convenient to read on a computer or on a phone.

The FB2 format was created by Russian developers and is an unofficial standard for storing electronic books in Russia. This format is supported on a large number of devices.

Taking into account these circumstances, it becomes clear that users need to convert Word to FB2 in order to save a document or e-book in a new format. To do this, you need a program – a Word to FB2 converter, or a service on the Internet where you can convert Word to FB2 online.

In this guide, you will find instructions on how to convert a Word file to FB2 using a PC program, or how to convert Word to FB2 online. In the first case, all work is done on a computer, the second option involves performing the necessary operation on the service on the Internet.

How to convert Word to FB2 in htmlDocs2fb2

First, let’s try to translate Word to FB2 using a specialized program on a computer in the Windows operating system.

The free program htmlDocs2fb2 is designed to convert files saved in HTML and Word formats to FB2 format. The application supports the Russian language, does not require installation on a computer (portable), runs from a folder.

The htmlDocs2fb2 program supports the following formats as source:

  • DOCX, DOC, RTF, HTML, HTM, SHTML.

The author of the program is Arkady Kopanitsa. You can download the Word to FB2 converter from the official page of the application creator.

The inclusion of the Russian language in htmlDocs2fb2 is as follows:

  1. Run the htmlDocs2fb2 program on your computer.
  2. In the main window of the application, click on the “Setting” button (the button is located under the menu).
  3. In the tab that opens, open “Other”, in the “Interface” section, in the “Language” option, activate “Russian”.
  4. The program interface will immediately switch to Russian.

I have often used the htmlDocs2fb2 program to convert e-books to FB2 format. Using the example in this article, I will show the process of converting an e-book saved in the “DOCX” format. Other types of documents, not e-books, are converted in the htmlDocs2fb2 program in a similar way.

Prepare the e-book for the conversion process: remove the cover if it is present in the document, the title of the book and the name of the author so as not to duplicate this data in the new file. Before deleting the cover image, save the image to your computer using one of the convenient methods described in the article on my site. We need a cover image to insert into an FB2 book.

If this data is missing in the Word document, none of the above needs to be done.

Go through the following steps:

  1. In the htmlDocs2fb2 window, click on the “Add list” button (the image of an open folder).
  2. In the Explorer window, add a Word format file to the program.
  3. The path to the source file will open in the htmlDocs2fb2 program window.
  4. Click on the “Convert” button, or press the “F9” keyboard key.
  5. After a while, the Book Information window will open. On the “Title Information” tab, enter the required data: the title of the book, the last name and first name of the author, the cover image. Unfortunately, the cover image is not always added to the final file, perhaps this is affected by the size of the graphic file.
  6. Click on the “OK” button.
  7. Word to FB2 conversion is complete. A link to the FB2 file will appear in the bottom area.

By default, the htmlDocs2fb2 program saves files to the Documents folder in a ZIP format archive.

Unpack the archive, open the book in FB2 format using an application that supports this file format. For example, now an FB2 e-book is open in Sumatra PDF.
