Convert PDF files to Text

You might receive a PDF file on a smartphone or computer without a PDF viewer available. No need to panic, can also extract just the text of a PDF file so you can see what is inside.

Of course, the PDF to Text Converter is done online, so it is not necessary to download programs or install untrusted software. Running unknown executables on your compter or smart phone may embedd a trojan horse or virus on your computer. By using the online converter, we eliminate this risk as we host the software converter program on our servers.

Of course, changing the PDF file to text does lose some formatting, but the text should be readable to give you a good idea what the PDF document is about. You can also convert the PDF file to MS Word Doc or Docx format to preserve some of the formatting.
