Convert PDF Files to Word Documents With These 2 Free Apps


Over the weekend, a former student asked me to write letters of recommendation for three separate university applications. Two of the recommendation forms were editable PDF files, meaning all I had to do was click on each field and type in the requested information. The third form was also a PDF, but it was not set up so that I could fill it out electronically. After several botched attempts at copying, pasting and reformatting in Microsoft Word, I gave up, printed out the form and handwrote my responses.

If you knew what my handwriting looks like, you’d understand why I couldn’t bring myself to submit such an important document covered in my chicken scratch. So I started looking for free PDF converters.

PDF converterWhile there are plenty of file converters out there, most charge a monthly fee. One exception is called, of all things, PDF Converter. This allowed me to upload the PDF form and convert it to a downloadable Word document for free.

There are two caveats: One, you can only convert two pages for free. Two, as far as I can tell, you can only convert one file every 24 hours. It’s not a cure-all solution, but it certainly came in handy when I was in a pinch.

If you need tPDF converter 2o convert more than two pages, or have several PDFs to convert, head over to Nitro Cloud. Like the PDF converter above, Nitro Cloud will convert your document for free, but you are limited to five conversions a month—or you can pay five dollars a month for unlimited conversions.

I can think of several instances where both of these applications would have come in handy. Often I would find articles online or a colleague would share a lesson plan or assignment sheet that was only available in PDF format. If I didn’t want to use the entire article, or if I needed to make changes to the lesson plans, I’d have to copy and paste the text into a word document and spend time reformatting all of the unnecessary spaces and strange formatting issues. As you probably know, this can be irritating and time consuming!
