There are some companies that do this - this was the first that came up a google search:

Joomla to Wordpress - Custom WordPress and Joomla Services by CrushLabs, Inc.

but usually, it's not worth the hassle. Start with a fresh theme. It's the best option.

Cheers,

I've heard something about a script to convert your Joomla content to your WordPress installation, but you need to have some experience with PHP in order to be able to run the conversion.

Friend,

I am not sure about any plugin or converter which will completely help to extract the same template into WP theme within one click but want to recommend you to
1. Create the mock (PSD)
2. and then with the help of designer create its HTML and with the help of developer convert it into WP theme.
Hardly for this process it will take 10-12 hrs.

I would hire a wordpress template designer and ask him to reproduce the theme, otherwise it is very complicated and it might not work

I would use broilplate and convert the template that way. I have done this with a lot of sites for example. I live up in missoula montana and there are few so called web companies that make crap and dont give a cms to companies up here so I have to convert there templates "html" files to a wordpress theme.

You can try CMS2CMS - that's an online convertor tool. I used it to move from Drupal to Wp, and it also supports joomla to wp. You'll be able to import only content, however. The design would have to be taken care of.

regards!

You will have to get the theme deisnged in Wordpress. You can keep the same design or go for a new design as well.
