Word Macros I Have Loved and Almost Lost

I’ve recently had to convert MS Word files with tons of zenkaku English text in them to all hankaku so I could forward them to people on non-Japanese language-enabled systems. Luckily, I happen to have written a macro during my salaryman days that does just that.
Looking at the code, it seems I could never figure out how to get a few symbols working (such as the “degrees Celsius” symbol), but other than that it works very well.
If you have the need for such a macro, drop me an email.

  1. Hello.

    How are you today?

    I am a proofreader at a Japanese translation company, and I am very interested in the macro you use to convert zenkaku characters to hankaku characters.

    If it wouldn’t be too much trouble, would you mind sending me the code so I could also use the macro?

    Thank you very much.
