Are there any free programmes that will convert 20 odd pages from pdf to word. Documents are sensitive so don't want to do it online

Personally I use Nitro Pro - that allows pdf-Word conversion, http://www.nitropdf.com/ BUT its not free. They do have a 14 day trial, but I cant remember what if any limitations it has. The Free nitro reader does conversion as well, BUT only to txt, so if the pdf has any graphics it wont convert correctly.

One thing you have to be careful about as well, depending on how much detail, pictures etc are in the PDF will depend on how large the end word Doc will be.

Just did a trial conversion, a 255 page PDF, @ 2MB when converted ended up in a 10MB word doc.

You could try this. (http://www.wondershare.de/cd-cover/active/pdf-converter-pro.html) Even tho its in german, you can get the english version. This is a giveaway

Where it says email put your email addy in to the right your name. Then click on Aktivieren, then check your email. You'll get a licence name (it'll say Lizenzname in the email) and a serial (Seriennummer)to register it. Click on download on the above site, to get the full version (it's 89.4 mb)

I think this is the program above (http://www.wondershare.com/pdf-converter/)

sorry neither was successful. They both downloaded but when the documents were converted to word each page had a big watermark which couldn't be removed. The other programme said my document had images in it (which it didn't unless they were the signatures and the document had been photocopied) and the text was all skew wiff. Any other ideas please

Did you register it, if it has watermarks on the converted doc/s?

PDF to word, are you wanting to edit the document or just create a image of each page.....Otherwise you might try some OCR software...

There are so many ways can convert PDF files to word, but if your PDFs are the important business files, you'd better try some desktop application, if PDFs is not important, just try some online conversion,. Office includes the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer driver, which makes it easy to save a Word document as a Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) file. TIFF is a widely used format that can be viewed by many software programs, such as graphics software, software that comes with an optical scanner, and software for sending and receiving electronic faxes.

PS: I found a great article which talks about the difference between: desktop and line conversion: http://www.vibosoft.com/ebook/convert-pdf-to-word-mac-windows.html

If you have many important business PDF files, it is not suggested using free or online conversion tool.
