PDF (Portable Document Format) is the most popular and convenient format for storing, downloading and exchanging large-format text documents. Download PDF-documents (for example, books, textbooks, instructions) occurs much faster than in the case of their DOC-analogues.
The fact is that the same text “weighs” less if you save it not in DOC, but in PDF format. The main drawback of this format is that it is not intended for editing. However, in some situations this can serve, on the contrary, its advantage: a PDF file is easily protected from copying. Therefore, often there is a need to convert a PDF-document into a format that can be edited, as a rule, it’s DOC, TXT or RTF. Or back.
Introducing the Top 5 online PDF file converters. All of them are free and can convert files from PDF to other formats, and some – vice versa: they can create PDF files.
The site offers a free function to convert PDF files to Word documents and vice versa – Word to PDF. After selecting a PDF document that is to be converted, it will be immediately sent to the site for processing. After the process of converting the file is completed, you can evaluate its results by previewing the Word document directly in the web page window. If the conversion quality is good, you can download the file in RTF format to your computer.
PDFOnline is an absolutely free online tool for converting PDF documents to Word format. It does not “mark” pages of the converted document with watermarks or advertisements, as some services do, forcing users to buy premium access to their service. The quality of the conversion with PDFOnline is quite high – the original document preserves the original content, color, layout, font, etc. True, the conversion of DOC files to Cyrillic is not always correct. At the same time, the conversion of PDF-documents in Russian works quite well. An RTF file will be created at the output.
This tool not only offers free online conversion of PDF files to Word and vice versa (as well as XLS and PPT to PDF), but also supports the merging of multiple files into one PDF document and other functions. To do this, just drag the files to be converted into a special window, after which the pop-up dialog box will display the progress of the process. Once the file conversion is complete, it will appear in the list of files available for download. Next, it remains to determine the location on the computer where the converted file will be placed in .DOCX format.
This service perfectly copes with documents in Russian. In the converted DOC (DOCX) files, the original content and view are retained.

In addition, the service allows you to convert a PDF file into a DJVU format. There is also a conversion to FB2 and JPG. In general, the number of supported formats is one of the largest among such web tools.
But its interface is disgusting – “design” at the level of 90x, instead of usability – long instructions for use (this is for the simplest functional!), Moreover it is packed with advertising. But everything is in Russian.
