How to Convert a .MDX Dictionary Into a PDF

Modern mobile devices and word processors must be able to provide users with a reliable way to check the spelling and grammar of any entered text and suggest text, too. Predictive typing makes mobile keyboards much easier to use. Similarly, accessibility needs support for text to speech applications, also called TTS. Software that supports these actions must have dictionary files behind the scenes to function appropriately.

What if you find yourself needing to work on or examine a dictionary file the format known as .MDX? Viewing the file’s contents alone in the software that produced it, usually a program called MDict, probably won’t give you the results you’re looking for in this scenario. Because this is a relatively obscure format that is not widely supported, you’ll need to make sure you follow the proper steps to produce a usable PDF document from the source file. Let’s look at what you need to do next.

Convert a .mdx Dictionary File into PDF

Because the .MDX file type is a niche format, you’ll need to be sure you have software that can open these files on their own first. Next, you’ll also need to install a fully-featured PDF editor, such as Kofax Power PDF. Doing so equips your system with a “virtual printer” that can create PDFs from different files. Once you have the appropriate tools installed, follow these steps:

  1. Open the MDX file in the appropriate application.
  2. Select the Print option.
  3. Choose “Power PDF” as the printer solution.
  4. Press Print.

Power PDF will take the document's contents and output them into a PDF file.

How to Convert a .mdx Dictionary File into Word

What if you want a Word file of the dictionary information instead of a PDF? First, follow the steps above to output the file into a usable format. Next, you can use Power PDF again to accomplish your goal. You don’t need to search for a free PDF to Word converter — you have the functionality built in already.

  1. Open the new PDF file in Power PDF.
  2. Click File, then Save As.
  3. Indicate Microsoft Word in the file type box.
  4. Name the file and save.

You’ll now have a Word file with the contents of the MDX-to-PDF conversion ready for you to use.
