Established in 1986, LuxSoft has been performing this fully confidential and professional service for years so please beware amateur imitators who lose your document formatting with a 'plain text' conversion or produce files which can endanger Windows systems.
We can accept Loco Files on the following media :
The most popular Word Processor formats are MS Word 'Doc' & 'Docx' plus Rich Text 'Rtf' as these can not only be read by MS Word but also Kingsoft Office, Open Office, MS Works, Lotus Word Pro and most Apple Macs. As there are advantages & disadvantages to all the formats, we normally supply all the results in Word 2, Word 7, Docx and Rich Text so that they suit the widest range of document layout, WP software and computer. However, we can also convert files to be suit Word Perfect, Windows Write, MicroSoft Works 3 and Wordpad.
LocoFile databases are normally converted to DBF format which is suitable for Excel and a wide variety of other Spreadsheet & Database software, but we can also produce CSV files on request.
Please note that we are unable correctly to convert text that is in Greek, Cyrillic (Russian) or Old Icelandic or any other characters that have been obtained by switching keyboard layouts.
For files supplied on floppy disc(s), the base price is £10 for ALL the files on one complete disc no matter how many docs there are on board (subject to a minimum conversion order value of £15 ie excluding any P&P, media or data recovery charges).
following volume prices assume that all the discs are error-free (fully
For files supplied on CD, old hard drives or via e-mailed Zipped archives, price is £10 per megabyte (or part thereof) of uncompressed files but there are discounts for 6mb or more. Here also there is a minimum conversion charge of £15 (ie excluding any P&P or data recovery charges)
We do NOT ask for payment in advance - you will be invoiced upon completion.
For overseas customers, £1 currently translates to approx $1.30 US or 1.20 Euros. Please note that we can ONLY accept payments in Euros or Dollars as cash or via PayPal - bank transfers must be in £ Sterling ('GBP').
The conversion service is totally confidential and we aim to send back the results within 3-5 working days. Our main aim though is quality rather than speed so for large batches of discs or at busy periods, it may be a little longer. Also our 'heritage' hardware and its operator are not getting any younger ! Naturally, if there were to be a long delay, you would be notified by e-mail.
