PDF to Word For Free

On January 10, 2008, in Web Development, by Anuj Gakhar

My wife asked me an hour ago how to convert PDF file to Word. She had this huge 40 page PDF file that she wanted to convert. I told her a few links from Google and after trying about 6 of them, all she found out was that they only do about the first 3 or 5 pages unless you pay for the software. That got me leaving my stuff I was doing and searching for a software that would do the job.

And finally, my wife found one software (and I couldnt!) http://www.download3000.com/download_48391.html
This free software did the trick for her but I was wondering are there really no tools around for this in an easy way ?

Probably another little CF project to take up for myself!

    Thanks for sharing. I had the similar problem before and searched to your blog. However all the software mentioned above can not let me extract content from a locked pdf file.
    After long time searching, I finally found this, althought shareware. But anybizsoft pdf to word support converting password protected pdfs.
    Hope others can save time from typing.

    I have downloaded a program called Advanced pdf to word 5.0. It,s pretty good. It is very good in preserving the formatting. You download it from: http://www.advancedpdfconverter.com/products/pdftoword.html

    Compared to other versions of pdf converters
    ,i find Advanced PDF To word more appealing
    as it more faster to convert a huge PDF file to .doc without any quality lost,
    it also has more configuration option.

  18. I loved what youve accomplished the following. The style is stylish, your written content classy. Yet, youve gained an edginess to what youre offering here. Ill surely come back for much more if you preserve this up. Dont shed hope if not too quite a few individuals see your vision, know youve acquired a fan right listed here who values what youve acquired to say and also the way youve presented yourself. Very good on you!

    I like Able2Doc PDF to Word Converter which lets me select PDF pages, page elements and areas then convert them to Word format. It also converts entire PDFs and can create DOC, RTF and ODT outputs.
