[Tex/LaTex] Convert MathType and MS Word Equations equations to LaTeX


I'm a programmer and writing application for local math community. It's web application and I'm using MathJax Plugin in it and LaTex format for mathematical equations. Most of the mathematicians are using MS Word (2007 or 2010) and have math papers and formulas in MS Word usually written in MathType.

Is there any easy and free offline tool to convert MathType and MS Word equations to LateX, so they can convert MathType formulas and input LaTeX formulas to my web application? I've found some tools and plugins for MS Word, but some of them have problems working on 64bit Windows, others are commercial. Thanks for help.
