Hi Jim,

We use Webwork in the Math Department. The webwork problem language is
quite similar to that of lon-capa. I translated a semesters worth of
webwork problem sets for a Stat course into lon-capa, and it really
didn't take that long. But it was a manual process - I did each
problem individually.

If you plan on using webwork problems, I would recommend you install
webwork, rather than translate problems. Webwork is an excellent
product, and it included 5 or 6 different display modes that displays
complex math expressions very well. And it comes with 6 or 7 large
problem libraries.
