LaTeX is a document preparation system used in high quality typesetting. It is popularly and widely used for the publication of medium to large sized technical or scientific documents related to a variety of fields such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science and more but can easily be used for almost any form of publishing. It has a great ability to format documents that contain complex equations associated with mathematics and other similar subjects.

LaTeX persuades the authors not to bother much regarding the visual appearance of their documents but focus more on the content. Hence, it uses plain text unlike the heavily formatted text found in word processors like Microsoft Word and others. LaTeX makes use of markup tagging rules to define a document’s general structure, stylist text in bold or italics and to insert citations and references in the document.

For people in academia, especially in the STEM discipline, manuscripts are everything and it is a well-known fact that manuscripts written in Word and other similar editors, diminishes its value. Hence people in this field widely use LaTex which makes a big difference in the final outcome. Content is central and of utmost importance in such cases and requires a tremendous amount of work involving large quantities of data in tabular format prepared in Excel. This tabular data too will have to be converted to LaTeX format that requires converters to carry out the process.

In this article we will be exploring 5 Free Websites to convert Excel to LateX online.
