Editors' Review

by   / March 25, 2009

Some PDF to Word Converter is one of the better free PDF-to-Word format converters out there, but like its competition it's far from perfect. Its interface is basic but uncluttered, even with all of the user options handily available in a sidebar on the right. It handles batch conversions, converts outer fonts into text and embedded fonts into images, and supports both All Pages and page-range specific conversions. Some PDF can also remove graphics on demand from the output document, which is always in the RTF format.

Its biggest drawback is that the conversions aren't always the cleanest, and PDFs that contain image and text formatting that would be complicated in MS Word sometimes overlap. There is noticeable image deterioration as well. It would be helpful if you could add PDFs by drag and drop, but you can't. In its place, you can choose an entire folder of PDFs via the folder icon. Some of the interface's option descriptions could be better phrased, too: "delete all graphics" with an option of "false" or "true" really could be posed better as "remove all graphics" and "yes" or "no."

The imperfections are not minor, but neither are they insurmountable. Even with them, this is a decent PDF-to-RTF converter, with speedy batch conversion, support for encrypted PDFs, and room for improvement.
