If you have Microsoft Word, It can save its own Word files as PDF format, but cannot open a PDF file.

If you pray to St. Google PDF to Word converter you will see several free ones.

Word 2013 can open PDF files and does a very good job of converting them to .docx files. The free ones don't do a good job. There are several threads about them, though:

http://community.logos.com/forums/t/37096.aspx

http://community.logos.com/forums/t/44040.aspx

Now, I wonder how long it's going to take for the spammers to show up with links to junky websites for pdf conversion. (I'm talking about random strangers who have never been participants in these forums who just go googling around looking for forums to hawk their wares on, not Logos users recommending free PDF converters they happen to know about.)

I concur with Rosie. Yes The only problem I have had with the Word 2013 conversion from PDF was when the original document was in 2 columns and word converted it to one column.

Yep .just download a plugin for MS-word ,then you can save word file to pdf. if you' wanna batch conversion ,you just need to search for a third part software.As for me,I would like to use component of word ducoment conversion .  [link redacted]

I know your question was about free software, but I thought I would throw this one out for anyone who does enough conversion to justify paying for an application for it. I have been using ABBYY FineReader 11 and it does an outstanding job. It also does text recognition, so you can scan in something and convert it as well. I know a lot of programs can do this, but the ABBYY FineReader 11 does it really well. It is probably 99% accurate on recognition. There may be others just as good, but this is the one I know about.

Check with cnet.com in their download area. At least that way you will have many choices to better meet your needs.

Peace Tes!              I think there is only ONE version of Word.  I think there's a difference in pricing re. packaging of products.   

           BTW, I really like the way it converts .pdf to .docx!        *smile*

Tes… one last try.

Microsoft bundles their office products to different groups of people, with different needs. There is only ONE version of Word 2013, but it comes packaged in different bundles. It doesn't matter which way you purchase it, Word 2013 is Word 2013.

I have called to a computer shop here in Frankfurt ,some one from the shop told me that he doesn't believe that the home and student 2013 can.

Word 2013 is included in all the Office Suites. Going with more expensive suites adds programs like Outlook, Publisher and Access. As has been said by others Word 2013 (with the ability to open and OCR PDFs) is the same in all suites.

Microsoft does offer a 1 month free trial of Office, but I am unsure if it applies in all countries of the world.

Thank you David,for the info. I could not be sure ,wether the Home and Student could convert from PDF to Word document, I would like to hear if there is some one  who has tried it.

Blessings in Christ.
