If you are using WS7d, then use Star Exchange to convert the files to RTF.

Your other option is to download and try the converters listed here:

Habit will convert extended characters into text or HTML, which word can read.

If you are seeking to translate, perhaps a better way, is to use the print function to output an ascii file to disc.

This file can then be input to one of a number of windows language converters now available.

The translated file can then be used elsewhere.

Would advise I have not tried this personally.

Advise how you get on.

Good Luck - Mike
