Almost all programs nowadays have a built in .pdf converter in that the file type you currently have can be saved as a PDF file type. But converting the other way is not as popular. Luckily, the SmartSoft Free PDF to Word converter is a wonderful application available to download that makes such a conversion possible. With a simple interface comprised of only the necessary pieces to create a Word document from a PDF, this converter is the way to make sure you can access and edit files that would otherwise not be available.

Its main screen starts with a list that displays your PDF document. Simply select the .pdf file that needs to be converted, and it will be added to the list. On the right hand side is a viewer where all pages are available for you to preview and zoom in or out to ensure the correct documents are being switched over. Once you are pleased with your file choices, double check the output format. Though Word is the most popular file type to convert to, the PDF can also be changed to a JPEG, HTML, XLS or TIFF. Finally, simply confirm the output file folder, and click the convert button. The status bar will start running to indicate progress, and once the entire document is converted, a pop-up will appear to notify you that your document is ready. From this screen, you can choose to either open the file directly or open the folder the file is located in.

The only major con with this program is its inability to convert multiple PDFs at one time. Instead, you have to convert one, then choose another, and repeat the process until everything is in the required file format. On the other hand, it will convert every page within the PDF file that is chosen. Also, it is entirely free, and there is never an expiration date. It automatically updates and comes with free tech support. Unlike many free converters, this one can actually be integrated into MS Office to allow for quick and painless conversions directly to your program. Its conversion is quick and accurate, and though relatively barebones, it does what it needs to with surprising accuracy and speed. Free PDF to Word Converter is the answer you’ve been searching for to finally change your PDF files to DOCs.
