Word .dot (or .dotx) files

What exactly is the difference between a Word Template and a Word Document? I have an application I’m converting that creates new documents from stored Template files. Can I simply pass the Template file to the doc = new Document(templatefilename) function, or do I need to do I need to first convert the stored templates to docs?
Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your inquiry. No you do not need to convert DOT and DOTX to DOC and DOCX. You can put templates and regular documents into the Aspose.Words.Document constructor.
Best regards.
