Under Windows, that's easy - just open the document in WordPerfect for Windows and save it in WP format. On the Mac, it's not quite so easy, because the import filters for WPMac are outdated. But do any members of this group need a program that converts other formats (DOCX, for example) into WP format?

      You may not see any usable results until they sort out a lot of left-over details of Hebrew and Arabic, and also until they build in support for the other

        You may not see any usable results until they sort out a lot of left-over details of Hebrew and Arabic, and also until they build in support for the other WorldScript alphabets - Cyrillic, Indian, etc. But they move amazingly quickly.

The libwpd people are responsive and interested in continued development, and were apparently able to add Chinese, Japanese and Korean script support -- no small feat, I think -- in a short time. They are also interested in supporting WPMac, a program that hasn't provided revenue to anyone for over a decade now.

I raised this problem with the developers of the libwpd import filters used in OpenOffice, LibreOffice, etc., and they've been able to add Chinese-Japanese-Korean support to the source code. This means that someday - probably not for a few months - LibreOffice will be able to convert WPMac Japanese files into RTF and DOC formats.
