I would be the most grateful if someone could explain how to convert word document into a .pdf format file without having to buy a particular adobe reader sofware.
I need to send my course work(translation) to the tuitor and because there is a translation from english into another language, i'm worried that they may bot be able to read it, unless i send it as .pdf format file.
Thank you very much.

pdf995 Mar 3, 2007

I recommend pdf995. The free version is fully functional, with advertisements, or you can pay a small price to use it without advertisements. It is the only free pdf creator that I could find which can also handle hyperlinks. I have an older paid version of Adobe that didn't work as well as pdf995!

Resource Mar 3, 2007

I have recently come across this resource:

zamzar.com,

which seems a very good online converter. Haven't tried it yet, but maybe it helps.

OpenOffice Mar 3, 2007

Go to www.openoffice.org and download the software, if you don't have it already. It is almost entirely compatible with Word - you can open Word documents in it, edit them and then open the same in Word again. It has a built-in function that lets you make PDFs out of your documents, and it also has some neat features that let you password protect PDFs and define some other parameters for your PDF. Works like a charm!

cute pdf not heavy files Mar 5, 2007

Hi

I like this one because it is very simple to use (you just do Print and then select CutePDF as a printer) and it does not take a lot of space in your hard drive.

Info: http://www.lancs.ac.uk/users/iss/fileconv/acrobat.htm#cutepdf

Site: http://www.cutepdf.com/

Regards,

Marta
