Norsk versjon - MathType

Software information

MathType is an interactive point-and-click editor that enables you to to write mathematical equations your text editor. The software contains more than 500 mathematical symbols and templates. MathType can be used together with a variety of applications. MathType is closely integrated with Word and PowerPoint - after installation we will fint a MathType tab on the toolbar in Word and PowerPoint.

Word contains an Equation Editor as its standard mathematical tool, and MathType is often called the "the Professional Version of Equation Editor".

MathType can convert equations to TeX, LaTeX and MathML v. 2 code. MathML is the standard for presenting mathematical equations on web pages. The software typesets equations in a mathematical manner while you type the equation. It can also export equations (all) from a Word document to pictures that are in EPS, GIF or WMF format. MathType can also convert an entire Word document to HTML, and the equations are saved as GIF pictures that are better quality than if you used Word's tool to convert your document to HTML.
