I am in the process of swapping from pc computers to minis at my office. I am moving data over to the minis that have Office for Mac. I have no problem with the Word documents or PDFs, however, WordPerfect documents cannot be read. I have a large number of WP documents. I was told of this problem before hand and told that I would have to convert each WP document to a Word document before they could be read. The advantages of the mini far outweighed this disadvantage but this document by document conversion is tiring. Does anyone know of a better way or of a batch conversion option?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

LibreOffice can read WordPerfect documents and convert them to Word format. LibreOffice can be freely downloaded; it's open source software. There are Mac, PC and Linux versions.
