A free PDF to Word converter can be an absolute necessity when you receive a PDF file that you wish to edit and type text into. PDFs are the best way to share information as they display the same format on every computer they are used on. However if you want to edit PDF files on Word rather than using dedicated software such as Adobe Acrobat X Pro, then you will need to convert the PDF format into a format Word can read. The free PDF to Word converters below will all do the job, although it wis worth noting that that with PDF documents with a lot of images can result in the quality of the conversion being reduced. The solution? Trial and error. Download the programs and see which one works best for you.
AnyBizSoft PDF to Word
While the interface is not as good-looking as other alternatives a conversion can be performed using it by simply draggin and dropping files into the window area. Conversions preserve the formatting and colors and looked great in Word 2010. A note on the use of AnyBizSoft PDF to Word converter is that it is free for personal use but a license must be purchased in order to use it commercially.
Free PDF to Word Doc Converter
Free PDF to Word converter sports a good-looking interface however unlike AnyBizSoft converter, you cannot drag-and-drop files into the conversion Window but have to browse you folders in the conventional way. While not a game-changer, this can slow you down a bit. That said you are given more conversion options such as the ability to convert individual pages and change original fonts. Unfortunately conversions are not spectacular with formatting lost and images not displayed correctly. This app could be useful for converting really simple files but if you want to preserve the document and work in Word, it is not top-of-the-list.
SmartSoft Free PDF to Word Converter
SmartSoft’s PDF to Word converter supports drag-and-dropping making the process on conversion very simple. All you have to do is drag and drop the file into the Window, select the conversion file folder and press the “Convert” button. A preview will show you how the file will look when converted. While the finished Word format documents look ok, there are a few problems occasionally with text/image overlaps and placement, and this is probably a good option to consider if you just need to convert the document and not make further edits.
PDF2Word produces good results and has a lot of options for conversion but it is really only a trial version, being free for documents of five pages or less to convert and can only be used up to a maximum of 100 conversions. It does convert documents well, but for highly-formatted documents with lots of images dotted around then it can still have overlaps. But for occasional use this package might just be what you are looking for.
