Multiple authors from diverse locations submitted to a scientific journal a manuscript for large review article in many sections, each formatted in MS Word. Journal policy for reviews, which attract no page charges, required a translation to LATEX, including the transformation of section-based references to a non-repetitive article-based list. Saving Word files in RTF format and using rtf2latex2e accomplished the basic translation, and then a perl program was used to get the references into acceptable condition. This approach to conversion succeeded and may be useful to others.
