You might have a WP document (maybe someone sent it to you) and you cannot read it because you don't have WP. Let WP2LaTex convert it to LaTeX for you. You will not need Word Perfect.
You might want to create a document for publication. You want to use the power of LaTeX, but you don't want to learn all the LaTeX syntax. Use your WP to write the document, convert it with WP2LaTeX, and then typeset it with LaTeX.
You have a corrupted WP file with perhaps only a single byte wrong and no longer readable by WP itself. Use -safemode in WP2LaTeX and recover what can be saved. Don't expect too much from this feature, but if you really don't know what else to do with a corrupted WP file, try WP2LaTeX.
Example of conversion results
The document with complex formulas: equation.wp equation.tex equation.ps
The document with some images: images.wp images.tex images.ps
The document with Hebrew typesetting: GAIUS-5H.wp5 GAIUS-5H.tex GAIUS-5H.ps

You can also clone the project with Hg by running:
$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/JaFojtik/wp2latex
WP2LaTeX can also be downloaded from this WWW site through your web browser.
The package contains executables for these platforms: DOS (Real), DOS (DPMI 16-DJGPP), Linux and Windows (95,98,Me,NT4,2000,XP,Vista,Win7). The full source code is also included in the package. The current version is 3.71.
Older and obsolete releases are now available from this page:
JPG library - get it if you do not have any. It is optionally used by WP2LaTeX>=3.07
gettext library for WP2LaTeX. Use it for MSVC and BCC compilers.
Note: The OS/2 support was totally broken after I upgraded my hardware. Is anyone is able to compile OS/2 target? If so, please let me know.
BTW: Do you know that wp2latex now also accepts unicode texts at input?
Doing these things will be very helpful for further releases:
See full WP2LaTeX documentation here. This file was obtained by LaTeX -> HTML conversion.
Look at beta release of GUI for WP2LaTeX.
(a) Bugs causing a loss of data or a program crash. If you find one of these, please send me a full description so that I can reproduce the bug, and also the smallest WP file which causes the problem. It means that you should try remove abundant text from your document and find minimal document that still casuses problem.
(b) Bugs causing TeX/LaTeX errors. If you have an example, please send me a detailed description as to what happened and what should have happened (how the converter should have translated the file if it had worked correctly.) I know about many situations where LaTeX reports an error but I don't always know how to cope with it.
Please report bugs here. And please provide your contact information (email, web site), without which I cannot be of any assistance to you.
