How easilly it can be converted to a Sword Project module, depends
upon what type of e-Sword module it is.

If it is a Bible, the easiest route to go is install
ZefaniaTextKonvertor, then run that to convert the module to Z-XML,
then run the Z-XML2OSIS conversion program, then treat it as a

If it is any other _text_ module, then install Text2DAO, export each
table as  CSV, and manually reformt the resulting output.

If it is a map module, then do a cut and paste job.  [Trying to

FWIW, _The e-Sword Utility Program FAQ_ describes how to convert from
e-Sword to Pocket e-Sword.   It does not describe the conversion of
e-Sword to other Bible Study Program formts.  It  does describe how to
convert other Bible Study Program formats to e-Sword.
