people at NSD kindly released Nesstar Publisher as a free package
(without support) in 2010.
It' s a tool for data archiving and metadata editing but FILE + IMPORT
STUDY (from various formats) and FILE + EXPORT STUDY (to different
formats) may serve your purpose:

I use this package and StatTransfer and find both valuable.
StatTransfer worths its money and is up-to-date with recent
statistical software releases. While Publisher will certainly helps
with "old" datasets but I'm not certain it will with Spss19 or Stata11
files, for instance.
Publisher requires a Windows platform (MacOS: I'm satisfied in using
this package with VMware Fusion). While StatTransfer is available for
different platforms.

Best wishes
