From ODF to UOF and Back Again

Since both of the ODF and UOF office formats are based on XML, it isn't (theoretically) hard to move between them. Nonetheless, it's good to know that someone has actually put together code to do exactly that:

Peking University recently released a program to convert office documents between OpenDocument Format and the Specification for the Chinese office file format based on XML (UOF for short). Both standards are XML office document standards, UOF being a "National Standard of the People's Republic of China". The converter, which took nearly a year to complete, enables users to convert text, spreadsheet and presentation documents between ODF and UOF.
