Convert PDF to Word for Free

Last week after I wrote about Magazinify I had a handful of readers inquire about tools for converting PDFs into editable Word documents. Here's what I recommend: PDF to Word is simple tool that extracts the text of your PDF documents and converts it to your choice of a Word document or rich text file (RTF). To use it, simply upload your chosen PDF, choose Word or RTF conversion, and enter your email address (don't forget to opt-out of marketing emails, unless you like spam). PDF to Word will email you when your file is ready for download. PDF to Word also offers a subscription service for batch conversions on your desktop.

Applications for EducationThe reason I initially discovered PDF to Word a couple of years ago was that I had some PDFs of quizzes and activities that I had created and saved as PDFs before I knew the joys of Google Docs. I don't remember why I saved them as PDFs, but I'm sure it was a good reason at the time. PDF to Word made it possible for me to edit those quizzes and activities again
