Please refer the following code example.

    //API controller for the conversion.
    public void ExportSFDT([FromBody]SaveParameter data)
        Stream document = WordDocument.Save(data.content, FormatType.Docx);
        FileStream file = new FileStream("sample.docx", FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.ReadWrite);

    public class SaveParameter
        public string content { get; set; }

Please refer the client side example to serialize the sfdt and send to the server.

import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import * as React from 'react';
import { DocumentEditorComponent, WordExport, SfdtExport } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-documenteditor';

//Inject require modules.
DocumentEditorComponent.Inject(WordExport, SfdtExport);
function App() {
    let documenteditor: DocumentEditorComponent;
    function save() {
        let http: XMLHttpRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();'POST', 'http://localhost:5000/api/documenteditor/ExportSFDT');
        http.setRequestHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json;charset=UTF-8');
        http.responseType = 'json';
        //Serialize document content as SFDT.
        let sfdt: any = { content: documenteditor.serialize() };
        //Send the sfdt content to server side.
    return (
            <button onClick={save}>Save</button>
