Converting PDF documents to Word .docx format

Hello everyone,

We’ve quietly released a PDF to Word converter, currently in beta.

Our conversion algorithm focuses on PDF text document, optimising for legibility when creating the output Word document. This means that some complex layouts that look great in the original PDF will not be preserved in the .doc. 

Text formatting and paragraphs, on the other hand, will be analysed and we’ll focus on preserving them. 

Repetitive headers and footers like “Page 1″, “Page 2″ or “Title here - Chapter one”, “Title here - Chapter two” will be removed.

Images are also preserved, and we do our best to place them in the correct text context.

Use-cases with good results for the PDF to DOC converter are scientific papers with or without double column layouts, web articles, books.

Task is currently in beta, so expect some documents to crash or return poor results. If you find this feature useful we’d love to hear more about what works well for you and what needs more improvement.

Have a good week!
