Convert PDF to DOCX in Batches


The option to convert many PDF files into as many DOCX documents is feasible. You need to first sign up for a Pro account (where a two-week free trial is available). Afterward, head back to the converter, upload as many PDF files as you’d like, and we will get started on the job instantaneously.

On the other hand, if you want to have one large DOCX file instead of many documents, you can first merge all the PDFs you have on hand, and then convert the file to DOCX. Both tools utilize the same drag-and-drop interface. With our currently operating capabilities, it shouldn’t take more than a minute to achieve such a feat.

Are There Any Other Restrictions?


Developed by Adobe Systems, PDF files are popular thanks to their versatility—almost any operating system and read and store these files. At Smallpdf, we strive to make it even easier for everyday users to manage their digital documents. Because of this, there are more than a dozen other tools that you can use, including:

  • PDF to Image: to convert vector graphics and many image formats to PDF.

  • DOCX to PDF: to convert DOCX to PDF without having Microsoft Office.

  • Split: to extract the existing PDF content into a new document.

  • Edit: in case you need to annotate, highlight, or redact the content of your file.

In terms of accessibility, you may use our online PDF tools to handle various file formats and file sizes on any operating system. Whether you’re on a MacBook, Windows machine, or even a handheld mobile device, the PDF to Word converter is always online, for your convenience.

And lastly, for when you don’t have access to our free online platform, there is also the desktop app to convert PDF to DOCX offline. Check it out!
