I often need this to convert government public domain publications to word docs.
In fact I recently got this question… which is something we all need to know.
Quick question I can’t recall what PDF editor you strongly recommended,it among other things converted PDFs to word.You had recommended it in an email awhile back.
Best PDF “Editors”:
- Adobe Acrobat
Best PDF to Word Converters:
Free Trials for paid products
Abbyy PDF Transformer – This one took over an hour to download – Yikes! This thing is HUGE – it looks like it has a ton of options for foreign (other than English) options. (It’s installing something called Abby FineReader Pro 10)
The installation also took much longer than I thought.
It pushed to have a pdf convert (the same pdf I used for all the tests) and the program hung-up. I can hear my computer is running hard.
Whooops – it says the document is protected and won’t convert – I did convert the same document in all my other tests – no problem…
Able2Doc Pro - This one worked really good… free trial is for 7 days and only allows 3 pages of content conversion at a time. Didn’t take long to download – the help buttons to start using right away were instant. No learning curve.
I found this article online that explains several options
- PDF Editor – Free tools to edit pdf files online (techblissonline.com)
I tried this Free converter http://www.pdftoword.com which emails you the word doc. – which I received in about 1 minute and it was “perfect”.
I’ll take free over paid any day as long as it works!
