With MathType, easily integrate the most complex equations into Microsoft Word®

MathType is a powerful plugin for Windows and Mac that comes on top of your word processing tool, such as Microsoft Word®, to edit your scientific formulas, even the most complex ones.
This software allows you to create mathematical expressions in your word processor but also to integrate them into web pages (via MathML in particular), presentations…

The completeness of the syntax is due to the intrinsic programming mechanisms, but MathType is at the same time compatible with more than 800 online applications and resources. Juggling with Mathcad, Mathematica, or Maple is a breeze.

5 good reasons to use this software

  • More than 1000 mathematical symbols
  • Handwriting recognition
  • Publication quality equations
  • Over 800 compatible applications and websites
  • Compatible with TeX and LaTeX documents

Why choose MathType?

With MathType, you get a simple-to-use tool that has three major intercompatibility strengths.

A tab accessible from the Microsoft Word tool ribbon

To insert an equation: the MathType tab in the Microsoft Word® ribbon allows you to easily insert equations, with or without equation numbers. No need to use the Insert Object dialog box.

MathType Commands : this tab displayed in Word® also provides quick access to commands for renumbering equations on the fly, inserting equation references, and converting a Word document into a web page.

Compatible with over 800 applications and websites

Wiris has an online database that lists over 800 applications and websites, 400 of which already work with MathType. If your favorite application or website is not listed, MathType will work using the software’s general techniques and programming mechanisms.

Compatible with Mathematica, Maple and Mathcad

Do you use any of these software for your research projects? Use MathType to share your math equations. Create your equations in MathType and then drag and drop or copy/paste directly into the target software using the MathML format.

From third-party software: copy/paste an equation from the software into MathType. Once in MathType, you can edit the equation and add it to your equation library or use it in a new document.
