Is there an easy way to convert a PDF file to Word? If I need to
download a program, are there good, safe ones that are free?

Thank you,

Doesn't google accounts have a converter,online, for free?

I have NOT found a single portable one that completely works to
satisfaction.

A free one that 'almost' works is PDF2Word.exe, which is less than 1MB.
From memory it converts to .rtf, which is Word compatible. In order to get
it to work with 'new' pdf's I first run pdf through the free online
converter service called PDFOnline [I think] It reliably takes those new
bloated pdf files down into older, and usually smaller size, pdf's THEN
run that through the converter and works fairly decently.

Going the other way, I've had great success with PrimoPDF. Set up as an
extra Printer. No ads, decent conversion from Word to pdf.

Irfanview [great free program] may have the capability now. Mine only
converts to .bmp, but very out of date.

Don't know if still exists.


As I said, best one I've found, but still has glitches, so proofread.

Word 2013 can open PDF files, but it cannot edit all types of PDFs. (In
particular, Word can't edit files where the text is in the "image layer,"
which typically means a scanned document.)

Alternatively, you could try one of those online converters. It will be easy
to find one using your favorite search engine. I found the following one
(without knowing if it is any better or worse than any of the others):

Thank you, Stefan! Unfortunately, not only is this document scanned, but
my version of Word is 2007. My worry was that an online converter might
not be safe to use.
