How to Easily Convert PDF to an Editable File Format

How to Easily Convert PDF to an Editable File Format

0.0/7 rating (0 votes)

The birth of the Portable Document Format (or PDF) in 1993 brought about the much needed standardization in document formats. But in order to explain this in more detail, we have to go a bit back in time. Before Adobe commercialized PDF, the most used document management platform was MS Office.

Microsoft created a great and reliable product from the start, but it had a couple of hiccups and technical imperfections were visible here and there. For example, if you wanted to open someone else’s file, you’d need to have the same software version as that person. Also, MS Word was often crashing and receiving unexpected errors. The PDF provided a helping hand by offering a new focus point for document evolution.

With its great set features, PDF was, and still is, a highly popular document format. Its initial strength lied in its independence, which gave PDF a huge monopoly and virtually eliminated any possible competition. It quickly evolved into a go-to format for viewing and sharing secure documents. Nowadays, you can add watermarks, encrypt files and if that is not enough, you can always lock down your file and grant permission to only certain people. One reason why PDF is so popular is that it’s not editable by default. It’s simply not meant to be changed, revised or manipulated easily.

But there are two sides to every coin, as overprotectiveness is not always a good thing. As digitally literate people, we are now reading PDF ebooks, manuals, guides, tutorials on our computers and mobile phones. The problem arises if, for some reason, we need to edit those PDF files in order to reuse them for something else. As this is a lengthy and tiresome task, it is necessary to find some practical tools that will help us automate that job. While browsing the web, we came across a free tool that provides everything you need to overcome this problem. Investintech’s free PDF OCR service allows you to convert your PDF documents into fully editable MS Word files.

You can do that in just 3 easy steps

Step 1: Select a PDF file that you would like to convert. Since it has an advanced OCR technology, you can choose either scanned or digitally created PDFs. The tool converts them both.

Step 2: Write down the e-mail address to which the converted file will be delivered.

Step 3: Click the "Start" button to initiate the conversion process. Soon enough, you will receive an email with a link to your converted file.

You can convert the PDFs of all sizes and you also can do so unlimited number of times. The conversions are accurate and usually fast. No matter what the level of complexity of the converted documents, the results are entirely satisfactory. Also, for security reasons, the files are deleted from Investintech’s servers within 24 hours.

This online tool can save you hours when trying to get the PDF content into a Word file, for later use. Needless to say, using this online tool can do wonders for your online productivity and what’s even better is that it’s completely free. And that is a pretty sweet offer.
