Why Convert Text to PDF?


Text-based files like Word documents are great for editing text and putting documents together. Converting text to PDF gives it more versatility as the final output document can be viewed on almost any system, regardless of whether the Microsoft Office suite is installed or not. Plus, you don’t need to worry about styles or formats as your file will look the same wherever and however it is opened. If you’re sharing a file, whether for a job application, a work request, or casual use, it’s always a good idea to send digital documents in PDF and not as a text file so it can’t be changed or modified.

Smallpdf is a GDPR and ISO/IEC 27001-certified company, and we take data processing very seriously for our millions of monthly users. Any document, text or PDF, is removed one hour after its upload time. During this period, you can use any of the online tools we have to modify the converted PDF file.

Below are a few of our helpful guides relating to PDF processing:

The most important lesson to take away is that you no longer have to worry about tedious, everyday tasks relating to digital documents. We’re here to help you find the best, most productive approach to your file management. Have fun converting!


Converting text to PDF is a piece of cake. Yay.
