Convert PDF to Word files for free

We’ve all been there.

We download a PDF document or receive one in an email, see that it’s not ‘clickable’, have to print it out, sign it or write in some information, scan it and send it back. What a pain.

Life would be easier if you could just convert the PDF file to a Word document or some other kind of format to work with.

Sure, there are programs that can do it for a fee, but who wants to pay for it? After scouring the internet, we found one of several free services that does exactly what you want it to: convert PDF files to Word for free. In fact, you can convert it to to  about 50 different formats so it’s exactly what you need. Again, for free. What a deal.

    Since I want to convert my pdf document to jpeg and tiff format, so I chose Stellar PDF to Image converter for Mac OS X to do the task. The above software is also good in its aspects but this software succeeded efficiently in converting all my odd number of pdf documents to tiff format, which hardly any software support. This is the amazing feature to select the even or odd number of pages for conversion task. I would recommend this software for professional purposes.​
