Smallpdf's PDF2WORD tool in action!

The PDF to Word conversion process is free to use. As you can see from the GIF tutorial above, you can convert documents without an account. This feature is applicable for all of our 21 online PDF-related tools—so please feel free to compress, edit, or save your files to other file formats, from Microsoft Office formats to images.

Work with Editable Word Documents


After you download your Word doc from the PDF2WORD tool, you can open it using Word itself, or any other text editor to modify your document. For instance, Mac users can use Pages to edit Word documents.

Speaking of Mac—our online tool is accessible from any operating system. Whether you are a Windows, Mac, Linux, or another OS user, you can always access our website via your go-to web browser.

Reverse the PDF2WORD Converter’s Work


So, let’s say you’d finish editing your Word file and need to share or send it back to a different party—always remember to send it off in PDF format.

Word files don’t have a read-only mode, and anyone can amend to your document. The PDF format, on the other hand, protects the content from editing. Most text editors should give you the option to save a Word doc as a PDF: The usual flow is to click Save or Save As, and then pick PDF from a drop-down list of available formats.

If you do not see this option, you can head over to our WORD2PDF tool to do just this: saving Word files to PDF format.

For avid Smallpdf users with a Pro subscription, you can even convert multiple files to and from PDF/Word formats. To do this, simply highlight, and then drag and drop as many files you’d like to convert into the blue drop area, sit back, and let us do the heavy lifting. Remember to download the result files, which we will conveniently place in a Zip file in batch processing.
