I wonder if there is some free solutions for typing math formulas the LaTeX way in Microsoft Word document (Office 2007)?

The question asked about "typing math formulas in LaTeX way in Microsoft word document (Office 2007)." But the responses and comments to date actually answer a different question  how to embed an actual LaTeX processor into Word. Very few people realize that the builtin equation editor in Word 2007 actually understands LaTeXstyle equation entry. Simply insert a new equation, and then type LaTeX into it. As you type, Word will built up a graphical representation of the equation. Once it appears in the GUI, you can no longer edit it as LaTeX. Word does not have an embedded TeX processor  it's just doing pattern matching to convert simple LaTeX syntax into the native equation format. You should therefore not expect to get perfect fidelity for supercomplex LaTeX equations. However, it's enough for probably anyone but a mathematician, and it's a lot faster than clicking elements with the mouse. The Word 2007 equation editor also has a linear equation entry format, which is fairly intuitive and does not require familiarity with LaTeX. For example, typing in Notes:



Write your Math formulas in LaTeX → Transform the LaTeX formulas in MathML Code → Copy/Paste the MathML Code in Word (after paste click CTRL and then T). Voila! EXAMPLE:Lets take for example this Formula: This is the LaTeX source Code from the above Formula:
Now open a Editor and put the above source code between the signs $$ $$ like this:
Save the file as .html file and open it with a browser like Chrome. Right Click on the Formula and Choose Show MathML As → MathML Code.
Now Copy/Paste the MathML Code in Word 2013 (or 2007) and click sequentially CTRL and then T (Paste Options: keep the text only) or go to the small Ctrl image at the end of the MathML Code you pasted and select the option manually. 


You can use Latex in Word. It provides macros for Microsoft Word that allow the use of LaTeX input to create equations images in both inline and display modes without having to install any software on the local computer. As far as I know, this is the only free alternative to the paid programs like Aurora and TexPoint. For Office 2007, go to Latex in Word Project Page on Source Forge, and click on Word 2007 under Files.



I prefer TeXsword over Latex in Word (TeXsword download). It has all the features of Latex in Word, plus gives handling of equation references. And it doesn't require the Internet connection, which I see as a feature not a limitation: MikeTeX isn't that big after all, and having the LaTeX locally allows you typing your document when traveling. 


@Devid's answer is excellent, but I had difficulty with the specific instructions. Here's what worked for me. Do Devid's steps through copying the MathML code. Then, insert a blank equation. In Word 2013, switch to Print Layout view (View tab on the ribbon). On the Insert tab, choose Equation. You will see On the Home tab, select the Paste dropdown, then Paste Special (or just hit CTRLALTV). Select One more thing  in the picture, the "lim" commands are italicized, where they were not in the original. To fix that, for each "lim," put the cursor just after the "m" and hit Space to cause Word to check "lim" against its table of functions and adjust the formatting. (Then delete the extra space that created.) 


I've created LatexToWordEquation based on answers. It is a Word AddIn. The source code I've pushed to Github. Link here If you prefer you can download the installer directly from here. How to do it 


Answer mentioned above is correct but there is a also shortcut builtin which is math auto correct. It is much like LaTeX. By default its inactive but you can activate it and is really helpful if you want to write big equations. For eg if you want to type H_{2} than you just have to type H_2 etc and many more options are available like for superscript character following caret (^) sign will be converted as superscript. Many such shortcuts are covered in this video or you can simply search for How to insert mathematical equation (like LaTeX) in MsOffice: Tips and tricks on youtube. This method will be especially helpful if you are a fast at typing. Moreover it will save your time which is lost while switching between keyboard and mouse and searching proper option in word.
