How to Convert PDF to Word Securely [Simply Explained]

The Portable Document Format (PDF) has come a long way since its initial release 24 years ago. Over the course of two decades, the format has proven itself to be the most popular file format for storing and sharing important information. And for good reason, if we might add.

If you do your work on a computer then you probably deal with PDF documents quite often. They are the most convenient file format for business documents. When you send out a PDF file, you’re 100% sure that the recipient will see exactly the same document that you’re sending. Not only that, the recipient will be able to view and read its content on any device or operating system.

Yet, not everything is perfect, PDF documents have their drawbacks too. Take editing as an example. If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where you needed to make some modifications to the PDF’s content, chances are you had a really bad time. In such situations, most people resort to a seemingly best solution-- converting PDF to Word using online services. After all, it’s fast and free.


How to Convert PDF to Word Securely

This might be viable for documents like a resume or some student papers, but for confidential business documents? Not so much. Online security has become a hot topic these past few months with privacy issues and data leaks abound. Uploading a PDF file that contains privileged information to external servers is not a good idea, no matter how secure the services claim they are. Face it, you wouldn’t handle your confidential document to a stranger on the street, why would you then do it on the World Wide Web?


However, there’s a silver lining. You can handle your PDF documents from the safety of your desktop with a dedicated PDF solution such as Able2Extract Pro 12. The best part is that Able2Extract works offline. The software doesn’t require internet access nor does it send your files to external servers for processing. Your documents are dealt with in the privacy of your own desktop.
