While there are plenty of programs that help you turn Word documents into PDF files, PDF to Word Converter Free is one of the only programs that helps you create Word documents from PDF files.

There are dozens of reasons why you might need to turn a PDF file into a Word document. One of the best examples is when you file your taxes. The Internal Revenue Service offers fill-in forms online that let you fill in each space or line. When you need to file an additional form or file taxes from a previous year, though, you'll likely find that those forms are only available as traditional PDF documents. Instead of saving and printing a copy, filling out the information and then scanning it into your computer, you can turn it into a Word document and fill out the form before saving a copy.

PDF to Word Converter Free also comes in handy when you need to view PDF files online. You usually need some type of reader to view them. That reader takes up valuable space on your hard drive and may be a program that you only use a few times a year. Some browsers make you download a plugin to view those files too. With this program, you can simply save a copy of the file and turn it into a document that you can view in Microsoft Word.

When you open the program, you'll see an input field at the top. You simply put the name of your document in that field, select the button to start the conversion process and view the finished document. While it can take a little longer than a reader would, it cuts down on the unnecessary programs and plugins on your computer.

The biggest issue with PDF to Word Converter Free is that the developers designed the program in the hopes of making money. It frequently asks you to do a few different things, including liking the program page on Facebook, signing up for a premium account or making a donation to the developers. Even if you make a donation and like the program's Facebook page, those same messages will keep popping up. You must upgrade to the paid program to use it without seeing those messages. If you need to turn PDF files into Word documents on a regular basis, PDF to Word Converter Free is one of your best options.

Pros:

  • Converts files in just two steps
  • Completely free program
  • Creates Word documents that you can easily edit
  • Retain page properties during the conversion
  • Converts embedded and protected content

Cons:

  • Constant ads and messages that you cannot turn off
  • Frequent requests to upgrade to the paid model
  • Not necessary for those who have the right plugins or a PDF reader
  • Free version only works for 100 pages
  • Automatically installs the paid version but does not let you use it
