There are dozens of different time zones in this world which you may come into contact with occasionally. Maybe you are planning a new holiday trip to a country in a different time zone and want to make sure you know when you arrive. Depending on where you go, you may even arrive earlier than when you started your journey. Another example are conferences and conventions that use live streams to attract a global audience. If you do not convert the time zone properly, you may end up missing the live stream because of that.
Time Zone Converter is a lightweight portable program for Windows that handles all time zone conversions for you. All you need to do is download the program from the developer website and extract its contents to your local system. Once you have done that you can start the program to convert time zones effortlessly.
You find a list of time zones and their abbreviation in an Excel spreadsheet that is stored in the program directory. You can use it to look up the abbreviations as the program is only displaying those in the interface once you start it up.
Here you select the time zone and time you want to convert, and the time zone you want to convert the time to. You can speed up the selection of the right time zones by pressing the letter the time zone begins with to jump straight to that letter in the list. A click on convert finally returns the converted time zone in a 24-hour format. The time zones listed include geographical time zones and military time zones.
Time Zone Converter is a useful program for users who in one way or the other have to take time zones into consideration (e.g. communication, working or traveling).
