IndexConvert: what does it do and why and how would you use it?

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2017), 35, (1), 33–36.

Abstract

Most indexers occasionally and some indexers frequently are faced with the need to convert an existing PDF or RTF/doc index into a format that can be read into their indexing software. Easier said than done, and for the most part until now it has been a case of doing the job manually. Will the advent of IndexConvert in late 2015, designed specifically for the purpose, change all that? Lucie Haskins, an established indexer and former computer programmer, has been putting the program through its paces. She finds it to be a valuable program which does what it sets out to do well, but it calls for considerable ongoing interaction and decision making on the indexer’s part, which makes it a program for indexers who like peeking under the covers, rather than for someone looking for a quick turnkey solution to a one-off problem.
