writer2epub (short: w2e) is a free plugin for the various OpenOffice implementations (including Libreoffice) text processors ("Writer") to create EPUB-formatted e-Books "from any file format that Writer can read".[2][3][4] A text to be exported as EPUB has to be saved as OpenDocument (ODT)-formatted text document. Writer2epub is written in OpenOffice Basic. Author of writer2epub is Luca “Luke” Calcinai.

Strings for writer2epub's user interface are stored in a DialogStrings_xx_XX.properties file, of which the program brings 14 preconfigured in release 1.28, with "xx_XX" standing for the standard language identification like e.g. en_US.
