How to convert PDF to Word

The format of Microsoft Word documents is universal, but the Adobe Acrobat PDF file format is even more popular. If you need to convert a PDF file to Word, here some ideas how to do it.

The problem with PDF files is that, unless you own Adobe Acrobat Pro, the tool used to make and edit PDF files, it can appear difficult to get a PDF file into Microsoft Word format so that you can edit it and share it with others in an easily editable format.

It is not that difficult, and you should be able to do it for free. There are free desktop applications that will get the job done for you, which is probably the way to go if you need to do a lot of conversions. Otherwise, if you just need one or even an occasional conversion from PDF to Word, you are probably better off with one of the Web sites that specializes in these conversions.

If you convert regularly, one of the things that you probably want to look for is a desktop tool that will do conversions in batches. One of this tools is Smartsoft’s Free PDF to Word converter. Please note that it is a Windows-only solution, and that the free download is a stripped-down version of their paid programs. Regardless, it does a good job of doing basic conversions of the type you want: PDF to MS Word. Downloading and installing this program is exactly like the download and installation process for any other Windows program.

The tool works on all recent Windows versions and will convert PDF files into either Word 2003 or Word 2007 format, either of which can be read by any Word version after the one that you export to. All in all, it is a very useful conversion program. Use is straightforward.

Just select the files you want to convert, select the desired output format, select a folder in which to put the converted documents, and click on the “Convert” command button. Use Your version of word or OpenOffice Writer to open the converted files and edit the content.

Talking about OpenOffice, check out the AddOns at the developers web site… there is a PDF Addon which makes you able just to drag and drop a PDF file on the OpenOffice symbol on the desktop and after a few minutes (depends on the complexity of the PDF document) it will open in OpenOffice Draw where you can edit the PDF file as you want. This PDF import tool is working nearly perfect. When you are finish with your work, just safe the document with a mouse click back in to a PDF document.

For an online service for just the occasional conversion, the place to go is PDFtoWord.com. The site only allows you to convert one file at a time, but you can convert multiple files serially. The site is easy to use. Click on “Choose File” and select a PDF file from your local file system. Then select which kind of file that you want to export, a .doc file or an .rtf file. Then type in your email address so that the converted file can be sent to you and click on the “Convert” button. The converted file will be emailed to you. Another great file conversion site is Zamzar.com, which converts a huge number of file types, including audio and video, to other file types, and of course does PDF to Word conversions.

As always, if you need any more information or solutions, do not hesitate to contact Phuket Hosting.

Online File Sharing Services

When you want to share a file with others but don’t want to hassle with email attachment limits or running a home server, use a fast online file sharing service. Here is a collection of some online file sharing services:

Megaupload

Megaupload, like other popular file sharing tools, has three options of service. You can share files with no sign up at all, they will be limited to 500MB in size, have a 45 second splash page when downloaded, and be given lower priority in the server queue. Signing up for a free account boosts your priority in the queue, raises your maximum file size limit to 2GB, and gives you 200GB of online storage.. for free!!. Premium accounts give you unlimited storage, unlimited file size, remove the wait time for downloading, and enable a host of features like batch downloading, password protection for files, and support for FTP and direct HTTP linking.

.
MediaFire

MediaFire offers multiple options of file sharing. At the basic option you can upload as many files as you want, limited by a 200MB cap per file. Free accounts will hold files for 30 day from the last time they were downloaded. Premium accounts start at $7 a month and boost the file capacity to 2GB per file, enable site-to-site transfer to your MediaFire account, enable embeddable Dropbox folders, and offer direct file linking—no MediaFire splash page when you share a link to a file. The folder-based organization of MediaFire makes it simple to share entire batches of files with others, like project files or holiday pictures.

Dropbox

Dropbox got many users by combining online file sharing with local storage and synchronizing. You can use Dropbox exclusively as a web-based file sharing tool to upload and organize files in folders, easily sharing them with yourself or friends. Grabbing the Dropbox client, however, allows you to share any file from a folder on your computer. Files stored in a local Dropbox folder are automatically synchronized to Dropbox on the web—useful for all sorts of options like syncing your OneNote notebooks among computers or keeping your password keyrings up to date.

RapidShare

The RapidShare service has multiple layers of user accounts which can be quite confusing to a new user. Without signing up you can upload a single file of 200MB, and your file can then be downloaded up to 10 times—perfect for just sharing a file with a few friends. When you upload files, you’re offered the chance to set up a free “collector’s” account which gives you further options to store and organize your files. Collector’s accounts accumulate points, which you can convert into a premium account—but no clear explanation of the process is anywhere to be found on the RapidShare site. Purchasing a premium account boosts your storage to 20GB and raises your per-file-cap to 2GB.

Drop.io

The drop.io service is available in two options. The free service supports “file drops” which can consume up to 100MB storage. Premium services start at $19 a month and expand the available storage from 100MB to 10GB and up, depending on how much storage and how many drops you would like. Drop.io’s “file drops” are where it really stands out compared to other file-sharing services. File drops are active pools of files to which you can add batches of files, share with others, allow other people to add files and collaborate, and view the media directly from drop.io’s media viewer.

This options are no solution for you, contact us for other online file sharing solutions.
