You don't need to convert. Most application forms will give you the option the insert your own scale and grade.

You can use WES (www.wes.org) to do the conversion for you. They have a rough estimation tool (free), as well as a paid service which is an accurate representation. Though US schools don't really need this conversion.

You can also calculate this yourself by following method-
1.First add up the total hours attempted and total grade points earned..
2.Then divide the total grade points by the overall hours.
