Yes and no. Zim has more or less the same wiki syntax as dokuwiki, so
simple markup will copy easily. However over time important
differences have been introduced in e.g. how links are resolved and
other more advanced constructs.

So even though it should not be hard, you probably need a script to
convert zim pages into dokuwiki pages.

I fail to see what the relation is with dokuwiki export.
