Dates can be converted into almost any other format using the Internet. This is useful for finding out how old someone is, calculating the difference between two dates or even finding out your date of birth on the Julian calendar. It is all automatic and does not require any math skill. Converting your date should only take a couple of minutes.
Things You'll Need
- Internet connection
Go to www.onlineconversion.com/date_time.htm.
Click the drop down menu on the right side of the page and select "Date/Time."
Choose from the list of links a format to convert your date. Below each link is a description of how the conversion can be used.
Enter the information required about your date to be converted. For example in the "Julian Date Converter" fill in the "Year," "Month," "Day" (you don't have to complete the time section) then select "CE" or "BCE." "CE" stands for Current Era and is also known as "AD," "BCE" stands for Before Current Era and is sometimes called "BC."
Click "Calculate" and Online Conversion will present you with your converted date.
