Except for modifying its content, there is nothing GIRDAC PDF Converter cannot do with a PDF file. Of course, it can convert it into images and a number of text file formats (HTML, Word, RTF, Excel, etc.) in a flexible and highly customizable way, but it can also extract the text from an image-based PDF document using state-of-the-art OCR algorithms, modify its properties, rotate its pages, add and remove its password, and even create new PDF files from any Office document.
The first thing that will probably strike you about this conversion tool is the number of languages it supports. It is capable of converting PDF files in around 100 languages into Word or any other text-based format while keeping the original layout intact at the same time. Double-byte characters (Korean, Chinese, Japanese, etc.) are not a problem, and a wide number of non-Latin alphabets are also well supported. When it comes to PDF to Image conversion, GIRDAC PDF Converter can transform your PDF documents into a set of images in as many as 100 image file formats, a list that includes any format you can think of and then some more.
Being capable of truly preserving the original layout is key for a high-quality PDF to text conversion. This excellent app will transfer to the resulting Word, RTF, or HTML file all the layout features present in the original file (columns, tables, colored boxes and text, images, etc.) without altering their appearance. But the great thing about this function is that it can be customized to fit your preferences. Thus, apart from the default “Flowing” layout, which preserves the original layout as faithfully as possible, you can opt for a “Continuous” layout that retains all the original layout features but adds continuous breaks to the text. You can convert the text only, either formatted (including tables and columns) or just plain text. You can ask for the content in whatever boxes there are in the original file, or only the images, or whatever text comes from the program’s OCR engine. The possibilities are manifold, and they all support further customization, can be performed on various files at a time, and in the entire documents or in a range of pages. Some of these layouts can also be selected when converting your PDFs to Excel and HTML files.
When it comes to editing the original PDF, this conversion tool will allow you to modify its properties (title, author, subject, keywords, page size, etc.), reduce its size without losing quality, add a password to it, remove known passwords, add bookmarks and watermarks, merge and split files, as well as insert, delete, and rotate pages. As said, except for editing the contents of the original PDF file without converting it into a different format first, there is very little you cannot do with this versatile app. Actually, you can produce new PDF documents using any Microsoft Office file ― Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files ― and, in fact, any other printable file as source.
GIRDAC PDF Converter is, therefore, much more than just a document conversion tool – it is a full-featured and flexible PDF editor and creator. Its clear and well-structured interface and dialogs make it easy for any user to master all its functionality in no time at all, and its high level of versatility makes it a must for anyone needing to transform PDF files into high-quality editable documents.
