Problem:
Converting thousands of AppleWorks files in to Microsoft Word for a Mac (2011).

I have a MacBook running 10.6.8, (so that AppleWorks will work).

Do you know anyone who might have a batch-file (?) program that can convert a thousand-plus, AppleWorks files into Microsoft Word (2011) for a Mac?

This conversion is vital because my livelihood is writing. I’ve tried to avoid using Microsoft Word since 1984 but can’t avoid it anymore. Apple no longer supports AppleWorks; if you’ve used it lately, that will become obvious.

Maybe you know someone in the Word division of Microsoft. If so, please ask that person if she or he knows someone who has written, or will write, such a conversion program. I live in Redmond, Washington, so I could meet such a person face to face and pay for the help.

Thanks,

The only tool I'm aware of that could meet your needs is MacLink Plus which is no longer produced or sold new, but you can find used copies on eBay and such.
