  1. Go to the PDF to DOCX converter page.

The option to convert multiple PDF files into DOCX documents in one go is also possible! First, you’ll need to sign up for a SmallpdfPro account, which starts with a free 7-day trial—you can cancel anytime. Then, head back to the converter, upload as many PDF files as you’d like, and we’ll get started on the job right away.

Instead of having multiple small DOCX files, you could merge all the PDFs you have on hand into one PDF with our merge tool and then convert the file to DOCX. Both tools use the same drag-and-drop interface. This won’t take you longer than a minute—impressive, we know.

Are There Any Other Restrictions?


Since almost every operating system can read and store PDF files, they are widely used. At Smallpdf, we work hard to make it as easy as possible for everyone to manage digital documents and PDFs. Because of this, we offer more than a dozen other tools that you can use, including:

  • DOCX to PDF - Convert DOCX to PDF without Microsoft Office.
  • Split - Extract existing PDF content into a new document.
  • Edit - Annotate, highlight, or edit the content of your file.

Using our online PDF tools, you can work with different file formats and file sizes on any operating system. Whether on a MacBook, a Windows computer, or even your mobile, the PDF to Word converter is always easily accessible.

Our free online platform is also available through the Smallpdf Desktop App, which lets you convert PDF to DOCX, even if you don’t have an internet connection. Check it out!
