Before Microsoft Word became the industry standard text processing software in the mid-90's, personal computers in households and offices around the globe were more likely to use WordPerfect for this purpose. Originally developed for the DOS platform, WordPerfect is an iconic word processor that can be used to create documents, brochures, letters, resumes, and more. The application offers extensive file-format compatibility, including those of its main competitor Microsoft. This is our WordPerfect download page.
