AnyPDF can be used to split, merge, compress, convert and much more PDF files – everything you do with PDFs. Can AnyPDF replace desktop PDF software?
Since its introduction in 1993, the Portable Document Format, or PDF for short, has long since become the standard when it comes to exchanging files that are true to the original and retain their appearance regardless of the computer, operating system or original program.
However, if you want to convert such files into Office files, divide, merge, password-protect or otherwise manipulate them, you need special software for your computer. Or visit any-pdf.com.
Over 27 million files were processed by AnyPDF in April, and the site has registered more than 8.5 million unique visitors from all over the world. The AnyPDF servers are located in Finland, but the site is available in 10 languages in order to attract as many users as possible.
The conversion from PDF to Word document worked extremely well in my attempt. The original PDF’s 8.23MB had become 11.4MB, but the Word document was almost flawless. Although it was 181 pages with lots of screenshots, tables, and section breaks, there were only tiny blemishes.
Use AnyPDF for free
The AnyPDF service can be used free of charge 60 times per hour. If users pay $5 a month (or $ 40 a year), they can use the Pro service. This offers unrestricted access and includes many additional functions such as ‘linked functions’ or ‘editing multiple files in one go’.
Conclusion: ideal for occasional use
If you don’t need an offline solution and only occasionally want to convert PDF files into the common Office formats (or vice versa), AnyPDF is the best choice.
You don’t have the feeling that you have to get to know new software. The page can be displayed in reasonable and simple English and the individual editing options are listed clearly and concisely.
