LuxSoft has been performing this fully confidential and professional service since 1986 so please beware of amateur imitators who truncate files larger than 10k or use 'text only' (ASCII) transfers which lose all your formatting. Unlike others, we do accept faulty floppy discs and will do our utmost to recover as much material from them as we can because ......
We care about your valuable data !
but we do not provide any
technical support, spare parts,
Some IT gurus advocate using the Brother's own ability to create 'text only' (ASCII) files to make Brother WP files readable by popular modern word processing programs like Word but having to do this one file at a time is very time consuming. More importantly though, this also means you loose all your precious formatting, including all those lovely bolds, italics and foreign language accents.
More importantly, this solution obviously relies upon your PC or Mac having a floppy disc drive as well as of course the Brother still being in full working order !
By using the original Brother 'WPT' format files, our fully confidential disc transfer service keeps your document formatting and the results are suitable for all popular word processing software on both PCs and Macs. However, if you do only have ASCII format files available, we can also convert these to Word etc format for you.
Full post-transfer support comes in the form of a comprehensive instruction & tips sheet plus free support by e-mail.
We can accept .WPT and plain ASCII text (.TXT) files originating from PC compatible Brother WP's on the the following media:

We normally convert files to Rich Text Format (Rtf) plus Word (Doc and Docx) as one or other can be read by all versions of MicroSoft Word, MS Works, Lotus Word Pro and even by the Apple Macs so beloved by the publishing fraternity.
However, we can also convert files to be suitable for Word Perfect, Windows Write and Wordpad.
For files on floppy disc(s), the base price is £10 for ALL the files on each complete disc, no matter how many docs there are on board, subject to a minimum conversion order of £15 (ie excluding any P&P, media or data recovery charges).
following prices assume that all the discs are error-free (fully
For files sent to us on CD or by e-mail (as simple attachments or Zipped archives), prices are based on £10 per megabyte of uncompressed data but here too there are progressive discounts for quantities as above. Here again there's a minimum conversion order value of £15 (ie excluding any P&P, media or data recovery charges).
We do NOT ask for payment in advance - you will be invoiced upon completion.
For overseas customers, £1 currently translates to approx $1.30 US or 1.20 Euros. Please note that we can ONLY accept payments in Euros or Dollars as cash or via PayPal - bank transfers must be in £ Sterling ('GBP').
The conversion service is totally confidential and we aim to send back the results within 3-5 working days. Our main aim though is quality rather than speed so for large batches of discs or at busy periods, it may be a little longer. Also our 'heritage' hardware and its operator are not getting any younger !
