How to Easily Convert PDF to Word

Have an important document in the PDF format and need to make changes before you publish it publicly or send a final version to a recipient? Even with a robust PDF editor, making broad changes to a PDF isn't always as clear-cut as it would be in your preferred word processing software. How can you get the file you need into a format that you can edit with the ease and benefit of all the powerful tools available to you in Microsoft Word?

  • This challenge is a common one faced by users in businesses around the world every day. The simple answer — convert the PDF to a Word file — often also seems to be the most difficult. There's no built-in way to do that in Word, and so-called "free" online tools often come with caveats or simply don't work at all. With Kofax Power PDF, however, it's not only easy to convert PDFs to Word files, but to many other formats too.
