A powerful PDF to Word converter that is fast and accurate

Everyone knows that you can’t edit a PDF file. People who’ve tried to open PDF files in text editors will be able to attest to the fact that it doesn’t come out looking the same. Some would even open with just a bunch of symbols and numbers. Using converters to turn the PDF files to Word files can also be problematic since the format and content end up being changed or modified for some reason. PDF to Word Converter by LightenPDF is a powerful PDF converter for business and productivity that can convert PDF files accurately. Using this software, you can rest assured that the Word files that you’re going to get look good and accurate to the source file.

Accurate Retention

Probably the best and most important aspect of the PDF to Word Converter is the fact that it can convert PDF files accurately. A lot of PDF files have crazy formatting and decorations that usually end up looking different in the final output. With this software, you’ll find that the output file didn’t change much during the conversion process. All of the text, formatting, and decorations are found exactly where they were in PDF file before conversion. You won’t have to worry about the gorgeous design you poured your heart and soul into disappearing when it’s converted to a Word file.

The PDF to Word Converter also has an impressive table retention ability. Tables are notoriously difficult to convert from PDF to Word files. Sometimes the tables don’t show up at all because of the complex formatting. With this software, the tables don’t just show up, they show up looking exactly as they were formatted.

Another great thing about this software is the fact that it supports batch conversion. It has no problem converting a large number of PDF files, even those that have a lot of pages. 

Minor Issues

Probably the only issue with this software is the fact that the Standard version of the software doesn’t have an OCR, or Optical Character Recognition. As a result, the software cannot convert PDF files that are composed of images. Fortunately, the developers have a version of the software that has an OCR. It is slightly more expensive, but it is worth it since it is incredibly accurate.

Another issue is that cannot convert to any other file format. It also cannot convert in reverse. These are minor problems, though. This software does explicitly state that it is a PDF to Word converter. In addition, Microsoft Word itself can save in PDF file format. It would have been convenient to have such features, but they aren’t necessary.

Powerful and Quick

This powerful software is a definite must-have for anyone who needs to convert PDF to Word files. It’s quick, easy, and simple. In addition to all of that, it’s also accurate. You won’t have to worry about Word files that look wonky after converting them from PDF. With the PDF to Word Converter, you’ll be sure to get beautiful, clean, and accurately-converted PDF files.
