We can convert any size of Brother WPT file to suit Microsoft Word for Windows/Mac, MSWorks, Appleworks, Lotus Word Pro, Word Perfect and many more - and it doesn't cost a fortune either !

Established in 1986, LuxSoft has been performing this fully confidential and professional service for many years now so please beware of amateur imitators who truncate files larger than 10k or use 'text only' (ASCII) transfers which lose all your formatting. Unlike others, we also accept faulty discs and will do our utmost to recover as much material from them as we can ...

We care about your valuable data !

Introduction

Some IT gurus advocate making Brother WP files readable by popular modern word processing programs like Word by using the Brother's ability to create 'text only' (ASCII) files but this is very time consuming. It also means that you loose all your precious formatting, including all those lovely bolds, italics and foreign language accents.

More importantly, this solution obviously relies upon the Brother still being in full working order rather than having been consigned to the tip !

Our fully confidential disc transfer service keeps your document formatting and the results are suitable for all popular DOS, Mac & Windows-based word  processors. However, if you do only have ASCII format files available, we can also convert these to Word etc format.

Full post-transfer support comes in the form of a comprehensive instruction & tips sheet plus free support by e-mail.

Oh yes, and we're also one of the cheapest services in the world!

Disc & File Formats Accepted

We can accept .WPT and plain ASCII text (.TXT) files originating from PC compatible Brother WP's on the the following media:

We cannot convert other file types from later Brothers eg spreadsheets & graphics.

Suitable Brother Models

The following models ARE suitable as they use discs compatible with our PC's -

Unsuitable Brother models  

Early models produced 240k discs which are not compatible with conventional PC's so, sorry, we cannot read & convert these. Models known to be unsuitable include :

so please do not send us any discs from these models !  

 

 

If your model number is not listed above as being suitable or you don't know the model number .... 

It may be a non-UK model we haven't met before so do try the following test first:

Write-protect the disc by sliding the tab on the underside so that the square hole is OPEN then try loading it on a PC. If a list appears of files which end in .WPT, then you are in luck .... and you can either e-mail us the files or send us the disc .... but do not double click on any of the files to try to open them. 

If Windows says "the disc is not formatted, do you want to format it now?" do please say No!  

All is not yet lost though as the cause could be the type of PC you are using or the type of disc that's been used ..... e-mail us giving the model number and the problems you are having so that we can send you a suitable instruction sheet.

Format of the converted files

We normally convert files to both Rich Text Format (*.Rtf) and Word 7 (*.Doc) as one or other can be read by all versions of MicroSoft Word, MS Works, Lotus Word Pro and even by the Apple Macs so beloved by the publishing fraternity.

However, we can also convert files to be suitable for Word Perfect, Windows Write and Wordpad.

 

Costs and Turnround

The good news is that the base price is just 7.50 for ALL the files on a floppy disc irrespective of how many files it contains. The even better news is that there are progressive quantity discounts for 6 or more error-free discs as follows - 
 - 6 to 10 is 7.00 each 
 - 11 - 15 it's 6.50
 - 16 - 20 it's 5.75 and 
 - 21 - 30 it's 5.00. 
For larger quantities still, please e-mail or call for a quote.

Please note that, due to ever rising costs, we have had to introduce a 10 minimum invoice charge (excluding any P&P charges)

For files sent to us on CD or by e-mail (as simple attachments or Zipped archives), prices are based on 7.50 per megabyte of uncompressed data but here too there the same progressive discounts for quantities of 6mb or more.

All prices include the e-mailing of Zipped results worldwide. For CD's to UK & Europe (incl Republic of Ireland), there is an additional postal charge of 1.00 or to outside Europe of 1.75.

For overseas customers, 1 currently translates to approx $1.75 US or 1.30 Euros. Please note that we can ONLY accept payments in Euros or Dollars as cash or via PayPal - all cheques, money orders or bank transfers MUST be in Sterling ("GBP").

The conversion service is totally confidential and we aim to send back the results within 72 hours ... but for large batches of discs or at busy times it may be a little longer because our aim is quality rather than speed.

 

How & where to send us your data ....

- By e-mail attachment ...

- On Floppy Discs or CD's ...
