Documents play an important role in human communication. It does not matter whether they are official, informational or otherwise. We are sure you use them often.

Word is one of the most convenient editors for creating simple documents. You can place any amount of text in the order you want with any font and formatting. You can add pictures, tables, charts and more. If you need to send a document (for print or use) there is a risk that the harmony of the elements will be lost. This may be caused by many technical issues. You can take care of keeping your document looking good by turning Word into PDF. It's easy to do with our PDF converter. In just a few clicks, you will be sure that your file will be fine.

Why everything goes well after converting Word to PDF

A PDF file captures the location of objects in documents. In this case, the ability to edit the text is lost. But there is also an advantage: the structure of the text will not be broken, and no third-party edits will be added to your text. So, the recipient will see the document in the form that you provide it. This is a good solution for publishing your own work. Just change the format.

Will I be able to go back to editing text after converting Word to PDF?

We would recommend saving the original in Word format. It is also possible to convert PDF to Word, but most likely any subsequent font changes or formatting will lose their integrity: for example, the lines of your document may be broken according to the previous settings, not the content. This can cause great discomfort for you. So just keep the original for yourself and the PDF for publication or posting. Most of the PDF converters work in this way but not ours. You can use ALTOPDF to go back and will have no problems. 

Are there any other reasons to convert Word to PDF?

Word can serve as a basis for documents, but it does not provide complete document management. It is not suitable for electronic signature.

In addition, the modern world is following the path of digitization. The documents are already fully signed electronically. An example of such a service is PDFiller. With it, you can create, sign, edit and send PDF documents online and receive them back. This is an ultimate solution for small and medium-sized businesses, saving money and most importantly saving time.
