More than 60 million people worldwide speak Korean, according to MSN Encarta. The word processing computer program Hangul caters to this market, providing native support for the Korean language and alphabet. You can share a native Hangul HWP file with someone who doesn't have Hangul installed by converting it into a Microsoft "Word 97-2003 Document" file. Hangul '97 and newer can save HWP files as .doc files.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


    Using Hangul

  1. 1

    Launch Hangul.

  2. 2

    Open the HWP document.

  3. 3

    Save the file as a Word 97-2003 Document (Doc).

    Using Microsoft Word

  1. 1

    Download and install the Hangul Converter for Word from the Microsoft website.

  2. 2

    Launch Microsoft Word.

  3. 3

    Choose "Open" from the "File" menu. Double-click on the HWP file to open it.

  4. 4

    Choose "Save As" from the "File" menu. Select "Word 97-2003 Document" from the "Save as type" drop-down menu and click "Save." The file name will carry the .doc file extension.
