Word to Wiki (On-Premises)

If you manage your own SharePoint farm then we offer a full-trust farm solution to meet your conversion needs.  The latest version of Word to Wiki supports SharePoint 2013 and 2016 only but we still offer a legacy solution for customers with SharePoint 2010.

How it Works


Users select one or more documents from the standard library list view and then click the Word to Wiki button in the Copies group of the Files ribbon.

From the publishing dialog they confirm the selection of documents and click the Publish button.

A few moments later the articles are created in the target wiki page library.

The target wiki library may be in the same Web Site as the source documents or it might be in a different Site Collection in a different Web Application.  The target publishing location can even be in a separate farm or hosted in SharePoint Online in Office 365.

Key Features


Embedded Objects

If the source document contains embedded object such as graphics, Word to Wiki saves these out to a SharePoint picture library and then stitches back the HTML to include image links in the right place in the resulting web page. No manual uploading or manipulation of images is required.

Bulk Publishing

Unlike other products where you have to process each document individually, Word to Wiki allows you to process up to 100 documents at a time.

Saved Configuration

Instead of having to present users with multi-step and complex publishing wizard every time they need to publish a document, publishing configurations are set up by administrators so they can be shared and reused.

Publishing Governance

Target publishing locations can be controlled at the library level, so user can’t inadvertently publish documents to the wrong place. And, you can switch on auditing so there is a record of who published what, where and when.

Automated Publishing

You can automate the publishing process so that when a source document is modified the web page gets updated automatically. Automated publishing can be triggered on every change or when a major version is released.  You can also enable auto-deletion so when a source Word document is deleted any web page renditions of that document are also deleted.

Metadata Mapping

Because Word to Wiki publishes documents from SharePoint libraries we can map the metadata attributes between the source document and the published web page.

Cross Site Publishing

You can publish documents from any SharePoint library to any web page library, standard or enterprise wiki anywhere in the farm.

Cross Farm Publishing and Publishing to O365

You can even publish a document from one farm as a web page in an entirely different farm or to anywhere in a SharePoint Online tenancy in O365.  No software needs to be installed or configured at the target publishing location.

Multi Language Support

The default UI language is English but Word to Wiki provides machine translated resource files to support Arabic, Italian, German, Russian, French and Dutch.

Indefinite Free Trial


We offer an indefinite trial period for Word to Wiki.  There is no such thing as trial version of the product, its just that without a valid license file the product will only work in trial mode.

When in trial mode, the publish dialog will display a yellow message header and published web pages that you publish will have a watermark placed behind the text.

Purchase and Licensing


Word to Wiki is charges on a per Web Front End (WFE) basis, based on the number of WFE servers you have in your production farm.

Each WFE license costs $1024 (USD).  You can buy licenses on-line or request a quotation and pay by electronic bank transfer.

No end-user or client access licenses are required and Word to Wiki can be deployed to other non-production farms (Development, Test, Disaster Recovery etc.) within the same organisation for no additional charge.

When you purchase a license, a small encrypted license file is saved to your SharePoint farm.  Code within the application checks that the license is valid.  If a license file is missing or invalid, the product will operate in trial mode.

Product Upgrades and Technical Support


Each license includes technical support and free product upgrades for a 12 month period from the date of purchase.

At the end of the 12 month period customers are invited to renew technical support and product upgrade entitlement at a cost of 40% of the purchase price to acquire a comparable new licenses.

Renewal of product support and free upgrades is optional but should you decide not to renew and your product license is more than 6 weeks out-of-date you will be considered a new customer, should you later wish to upgrade and will be charged the full license price accordingly.
