Why convert a PDF?
While the PDF is one of the most versatile document file formats out there, sometimes you need to switch to a different format, like a Word doc. It’s a common and necessary part of working. Here are some of the most common reasons to convert:
- You need to make a high volume of text edits.
- You are submitting a document through an automated tool that accepts only Microsoft formats. (For example, job application sites sometimes require this.)
- You don’t have the source file, and you need to reuse the information in a PDF.
Regardless of the reason, converting a PDF to a Word document or vice versa is easy and takes only a few seconds in Adobe Acrobat online services. There, you can ensure that you get a high-quality conversion and you can find the other tools you need for working with PDFs all in one place.
