File typeRich Text Format
Rich text format is reasonably standard and easy to process automatically. At Sprawk, we have developed an advanced library to process RTF files.
Our system first extracts the text from your RTF document, maintaining formatting wherever possible. This is converted to HTML format, ignoring images, headers and footers. After translation, a formatted HTML document is made available. You can then open this in Microsoft Word or in other desktop publishing systems to layout a new RTF document as needed.
The Rich Text Format (often abbreviated RTF) is a proprietary document file format with published specification developed by Microsoft Corporation since 1987 for Microsoft products and for cross-platform document interchange.
Most word processors are able to read and write some versions of RTF. There are several different revisions of RTF specification and portability of files will depend on what version of RTF is being used. RTF specifications are changed and published with major Microsoft Word/Microsoft Office versions.
