ZW file extension - Chinese text file

What is zw file? How to open zw files?

File type specification:

Text file type icon Text file type

The zw file extension is related to Chinese text files. It uses ASCII/Chinese Character Encoding. It is similar to an .HZ file, but uses a different coding style.

It is also known as a HXWZ file.

The zw format was primarily used for sending Chinese text via terminal communications programs. Since most operating systems support multiple languages now, ZW files are not commonly used.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .zw file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
