Features, Office A Microsoft-sponsored open-source project is expected on Friday to release a translator that will convert file formats between Microsoft Office and rival standard OpenDocument, or ODF. Microsoft started the project at SourceForge last year, relying on three partners to develop the code that lets a user open and save word processor documents in two different formats.

I find that calling it "translator" is misleading, because it is a Word plugin. If you do not have access to a copy of MS Word, you cannot turn .doc's into ODF's with this plugin.
