Here’s how to convert a PDF file to a Word document on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac, all for free!

A Portable Document Format, popularly called PDF, has been an integral part of our lives and we have to deal with them often, be it in the form of a college project, books, company documents and what not. However, it isn’t easy to edit a PDF and many times, the PDF isn’t even editable. So here are some of the basics you need to know about a PDF and how you can edit it by converting it into a Word document.
A PDF, as mentioned, stands for Portable Document Format and was created by a research and development team called Camelot, led by Adobe’s co-founder John Warnock. The aim behind inventing the PDF was that the file should look the same wherever it was shared and to whatever operating system. Warnock made sure that PDF would retain the image quality, font choice, and general appearance of the original document allowing users to exchange information between machines, systems, and users in a way that the file would look the same everywhere it went.
Editing a PDF is actually more difficult than you would think because of its nature. Moreover, some PDFs are not editable at all, leaving you with only one option, which is to convert it into a Word document. This not only makes the PDF editable but also retains the format of the file most of the time. Once you are done editing and then if you want to convert it back into a PDF, you can do that too.
Converting PDF into Word documents is quite easy and is a time-friendly process. However, there are a number of ways you can do it in. So let’s check them out:
Using a website is one of the easiest ways to convert a PDF into a word document. All one has to do is to upload the document onto the website and the rest is handled by the AI.

Other websites are also available for this process, including Adobe Online PDF converter, ilovepdf, Ocr2Edit, Google Docs (for text-only docs) and more. The process is simple:
