I think I have some useful solutions that are right for you. How do you say? You had no doubts and for this reason you decided to go here on my blog? Well, what can I say, you did really well! With today's guide I will in fact show you how to do it convertire PDF to Word in a simple, convenient and fast.
In the following lines I will go to show you all those that in my humble opinion are the best online services to be able to convert PDF to Word. By now on the Web there are many free services that allow you to succeed "in the business" in such a simple way that you will be surprised. Just think, they work without the need for any additional plugins and are perfectly compatible with all major navigation programs.

Furthermore, they protect the privacy of users by deleting all the files that are uploaded to their servers within hours of uploading.
The only precaution you must have is not to exceed the size limit for uploading files, otherwise you can sleep reasonably peacefully (even if, I were you, I would avoid giving "in meal" to any service Web over which you do not have direct control of documents containing particularly sensitive information).

What to Do in Case of Problems
Are there any PDFs you can't convert to Word? Then you are probably trying to turn a document that does not contain text into DOC or DOCX. Or rather, that even though it contains some text, it was acquired with a scanner as if it were a photo, without transforming the writing characters into texts that can be recognized directly by the computer.
To solve this problem, you can use such software or online service OCR (optical character recognition). OCR software is able to detect the writing characters present in images - or in PDF scanned as such - and transform them into real texts that can be edited by any program (however, losing their original formatting).
Among the best solutions of this kind I point out the online service Free Online OCR which is completely free (I also told you about it in my guide on how to convert JPG to Word) or paid programs ABBYY FineReader for Windows and Prism for Mac OS X (you can find more details about this in my tutorial on scanning programs).
