With Convertafile, documents, graphics, data files, and sound files can all be converted to a user's preferred format, according to Simon Reid, the site's co-director. For example, WordPerfect documents can be converted to Word, MacPaint images to GIF files, and Excel spreadsheets to comma delimited data, Reid said.
In all, the site supports more than 70 file formats, he said.
"There's nothing more frustrating than receiving a file or attachment you can't use," Reid said. "Convertafile gives you the flexibility to receive and dispatch a wide variety of file formats, without the expense of acquiring a range of software products."
