Convert PDF to Word

Nitro Pro contains export functionality that allows you to convert PDF files into Microsoft Word documents (.DOCX files) enabling you to easily and reliably re-purpose your content in Microsoft Word. You can convert a range of pages, whole files, or whole collections of files in a single task.

NOTE: OCR (Optical Character Recognition) will be automatically used on image-based (or scanned) PDF files to recognize and convert the text contained in the document.
