Can anyone recommend a pdf to word converter?

2 posts in this topic

My friend needs a pdf to word converter and I was wondering what a good one is. I have searched around and either they want money or free ones have issues and possible malware.

I guess he'll pay a little for converter if it was reliable and a full conversion.

Thanks for any recommendations

Mileage varies a lot, IMHO not really because of a program being "good" or bad at "extracting", but rather on how badly was the original .PDF made.

This is a freebie, normally works allright and has a bigger brother that is Commercial:

If the question is "getting a properly formatted Word document from a PDF" there are the issues before mentioned, one of the best one (at least in an early version) is the Foxit one:

which has however a 30 day trial, so your friend can try and see if it does what he needs.
