How Do You Convert Miles & Points From Other Programs to United Airlines Miles?

Million Mile Secrets reader Teri commented:

We want to visit Italy and France in September 2017 for our 30th anniversary.  And because we’ve already saved some United Airlines miles, we plan to fly with United Airlines or a Star Alliance partner.
