This question is pretty similar to this one:

How can I save a Pages document to .docx?

Unfortunatly, the answers provided to this old one don't work with:

Mountain Lion        10.8.5
Pages ’09            4.3

I already found a transition path which is going through the following steps:

  1. From Pages export as a .doc,
  2. Open the .doc file with LibreOffice and save it as a .docx file.

Unfortunately, this conversion leads to files containing a lot of useless list styles which are a real trouble to continue working on the converted file. See this related question on these useless styles:

Get rid of WW8Num* list styles upon exporting from Pages?.

How to export a Pages document under .docx format?

  • With Pages '11 (v5.2.x) you'll have the .docx export option - but I think you need OS X 10.9.x Mavericks for this to work - but Mavericks can be installed/upgraded for free, so maybe a valid solution. Aug 31 '14 at 11:57
  • Does this conversion method permit to get rid of the bunch of 'WW8Num*` list styles?

The current Pages beta on iCloud.com gave a very faithful export from Pages > Word .docx format (I shared the document with myself by email, but there may be a more appropriate way for you to do it). You can drag and drop a Pages file from your desktop into iCloud without fear of irreparably converting your original Pages '09 file.
