Recent days, I received an unknown .hwp file from my client for language translation services, in order to make it editable, I need to convert this file into Microsoft office word type before I proceed further, but it was hard to find a software to edit and convert this file… fortunately I have found an easy and free way to do this online, below I will teach you how.
1. What is HWP file ?
Hangul (also known as Hangul Word Processor or HWP) is a proprietary word processing application published by the South Korean company Hancom Inc.. It is used extensively in South Korea, especially by the government.as well as other Haansoft products, is a more affordable alternative to non-native comparable programs such as Microsoft Word. Furthermore, Hangul is widely supported in South Korea and has a large user base; many South Koreans begin their word processing life with Hangul, not with Microsoft Word.
Although the HWP format and Hangul word processor has become a common standard in South Korea, the program itself and its format is seldom used outside South Korea, and is incompatible with programs such as Microsoft Word.
