CS Odessa, makers of the diagramming software ConceptDraw, have announced
ConceptDraw Visio File Converter, a free Web-based service that enables users to send their Microsoft Visio-formatted files and get a more readable file in return.
Visio’s native VSD format is not easily exchanged with other diagramming applications, according to CS Odessa. So the Web service converts those files to Visio XML format (VDX), which is more easily read by CS Odessa’s own ConceptDraw application. The converted file is returned to you as an e-mail attachment, and the process takes about 15 minutes, according to the company.
