What is Hancom Office Hanword?
Hanword is a word processing application also known as Hangul, introduced by Hancom Inc. (a large Korean company in South Korea). Hanword supports the special needs of Korean written language, and is widely used by most Korean companies and governments in the entire South Korea.
Hanword saves documents in HWP format with the .HWP file extension, and can be loaded with the LibreOffice or OpenOffice applications. However, because of the major alteration in the structure of the documents, files created with the recent version of Hanword cannot be loaded in both LibreOffice and OpenOffice. Nevertheless, files may save in different Microsoft Office formats including PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX, DOC, and DOCS. In the later part of 2009, Hanword started supporting the reading and writing of OpenDocument files and OpenOffice XML in its version for Windows, and can save files directly into Portable Data Format (PDF).
Newer version of Hanword supports standard ODF files and can easily be converted into PDF file format. On June 29, 2010, Hancom Inc. published the HWP binary format specification over the internet for free.
