Microsoft Word is one of the most popular programs in the corporate world, since its release in 1983. It is an inevitable part of every computer that runs on Windows operating system. Because Windows is the most widespread among operating systems, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Word can be found on almost every computer.
Since it is an essential program for word processing in general, Microsoft Word is used for all kinds of business and personal tasks. That wide usage of MS Word may cause troubles to Mac users. Like Windows users, Mac users have a word processing program that is called Pages. It is like Word but it works only on Mac operating system.
Due to MS Word dominance over Pages, most business tasks that involve any kind of document sharing, management, require documents in Word format (.doc or .docx). For that matter, Mac users need to convert Pages to Word and get a file in a more universal and readable format.

To convert Pages to Word, follow these easy steps:
- Open your document in Pages.
