10 free services for converting PDF files




Although PDF documents are easy to use, it is often necessary to convert them to other file formats. Therefore, we have prepared for you a selection of ten services that you can use for free to convert PDF files.

1. iLovePDF

This universal platform contains all the tools for working with PDF files. Besides fast and easy conversion (to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, JPG formats), using iLovePDF allows you to merge, split, compress, rotate, unlock and watermark PDF documents.

2. Nitro PDF to Word

This software for converting PDF files to other formats is suitable even for beginners. Using Nitro PDF to Word allows you to work with a batch of files simultaneously, which speeds up the process. The finished files come to your email address, which you need to specify.

But you can use Nitro PDF to Word for free only during the trial period (2 weeks), and the number of conversions per month is limited to 5 operations.

3. Wondershare PDFElement

A free application for creating, editing and signing PDF files. In addition, the service is able to convert PDF files with many images. It is compatible with MAC and Windows platforms. The user can manage every element (text, images, etc.) of the converted file: add comments to any part of the document, let someone else view and sign it, share it with someone else.

The service also offers some professional settings. For example, protecting certain parts of the document in order to restrict access to viewing them.

4. Solid Converter

This online PDF to Word converter can quickly handle not only large PDF files, but also a large list of other formats. It has a simple and easy to navigate interface. Great for converting handwritten notes to Word. But keep in mind that the software adds watermarks to the finished document, and the trial version has limitations on many features.

5. Hello PDF

Easy-to-use service allows you to quickly convert images and texts from PDF to Word and keep the overall layout of the original document. Capable of converting a single file at high speed. Allows you to convert even scanned documents.

Among the disadvantages of Hello PDF: sometimes images are distorted in the original file, but random spaces or line breaks appear in the final document. Also, the programme lacks a batch conversion function.

6. PDFMate PDF Converter

The service allows you to convert PDF files (including scanned ones) to Word, Text, EPUB, HTML, SWF and other formats. Thanks to clear instructions, even beginners can use it.

PDFMate PDF Converter also lets you add passwords to protect your documents and restrict access to viewing, editing and copying files. The programme also offers batch conversion.

7. Small PDF

Online converter with a simple and clear interface. To automatically convert to PDF, just drag and drop an XLS, DOC, PPT, JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF or GIF file in the download window. You can also convert PDF to other formats.

Converted files are saved to Dropbox or Google Drive. The free version is limited to only two operations per hour. The paid version allows you to use the service without ads, as well as convert multiple PDF files simultaneously.

8. Free Online OCR

This tool works on a two-cycle conversion principle: first it pulls text from a PDF file and then converts it into a Word document. Once the operation is complete, you get a link that you can click to download the new file.

Free Online OCR can convert large files and is great for handwritten notes. However, when working with coloured backgrounds, the result is poor: either spaces appear instead of text, or line breaks appear in the source file. In addition, the programme lacks a batch conversion function.

9. PDF Hero

This app will especially appeal to those looking for a programme with a huge variety of features. The converter is available for download on all platforms, including the App Store and Google Play.

PDF Hero supports a large number of formats: Word, Excel, PPT, TXT. RTF, Open Office ODT, ODS, ODP, WPD, CDR, PostScript, HTML, PSD, etc.

10. PDF2Go

Universal service with a clear interface to edit and accurately convert PDF to DOCX, ODT, TXT, RTF, EPUB, JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, SVG, PPT and ODP presentations. Allows you to convert even PDF from merged images to a file for editing.

Other features of the software include: sorting and deleting pages, resizing sheets, repairing damaged PDF. The free version has limitations on the size of downloaded files and access to some features. Also inconvenient is the appearance of a large number of adverts, which you can get rid of by subscribing to the paid version.


To easily convert files from PDF format to the ones you need, we suggest you test the tools we have described and choose the one that will be optimal for your tasks.
