Manage document conversions (SharePoint Server 2010)
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 supports installing document converters on the server that let users transform documents from one format to another. Conversions can be run either from the user interface or programmatically, such as from a custom workflow. The relationship between a source document and its transformed counterpart is maintained.
SharePoint Server 2010 includes a Document Conversions Load Balancer service that balances document conversion requests from across the server farm, and a Document Conversions Launcher service that schedules and initiates the document conversions on a server.
