Hi guys… Today, i’m gonna be sharing with you an easy way to convert Large PDFs to Word.
No, its not Acrobat, but i came across a software you can use to split your PDF into sections.
Using a simple tool called PDFsam Basic. It’s an extra step, but the results are worth it.
If the PDF you want to convert to a Word document is longer than five pages, download and install PDFsam Basic .
Follow these steps:
1. Download PDFsam Basic
PDFsam Basic is a free tool for splitting and merging PDFs. Download HERE
Make sure you click the link Windows downloader (.exe). There are some ads on the page designed to look like download buttons, Ignore them.
Uncheck the box marked ‘Install PDFsam Enhanced’.
You’ll need to uncheck this box again when running the installer.
2. Split your PDF
Launch PDFsam and select ‘Split’.
Load your PDF into the box at the top by either browsing or dragging and dropping it into place.
Then choose ‘Split by every ‘n’ pages’ and enter ‘5’.
Choose an output destination and filename convention, then click ‘Run’ to divide the PDF.
It’s now ready to convert to Word format.
3. Download WPS PDF to Word
Download the free version of WPS PDF to Word and run the installer.
Make sure you’re happy with the terms and conditions before accepting.
Launch the software and either browse for your first PDF, or drag and drop it into the space provided.
You’ll notice that WPS PDF to Word lets you convert multiple files at once, but only if those files have no more than five pages in total.
4. Convert your PDF to Word
Choose a file type for your converted PDF.
You can choose from Microsoft Word DOC and DOCX formats, also RTF.
Choose an export location, then click ‘Start’.
When it’s done, the ‘Status’ column will read ‘Success’ and you’ll be able to open your converted documents in Word.
Voila! It has been converted…!
The document might need a little tidying, but in our experience it should be almost identical to the original PDF.
That’s how you can convert large volumes of PDF to word without buying a conversion software.
