I am looking for an alternative to buying the Adobe Professional system for pdfs. I ran accross the brand, ScanSoft and am looking at the PDF Converter Professional 2.

What I need is to be able to edit a pdf file, so I'm assuming that transferring from Word to PDF would be the easiest.

Has anyone used this, or do you have any other suggestions for me?

Thanks,
Andy

Solid Converter Dec 29, 2004

Hi there,

You may want to try Solid Converter (http://www.solidconverter.com/). I have used it extensively and it has been really useful. It is a non-espensive tool with great results.

Good Luck!

I recommend it. Dec 30, 2004

I have been using PDF Converter Pro 2 and its earlier version for about two years. I think it is the best right now. I used to use Gemni Solo which sells for $159.00. However, solo converts all text into text boxes in Word, which makes it less useful if you want to use the file with Trados. The good thing about Gemni Solo is that with the free International plug-in, it can convert Chinese PDF files into editable Word files. Again, I do not like that fact that the converted texts are put into text boxes in Word.

I hope that the above is of help.

I have used Solid Converter to convert PDF file in simplified Chinese into Word file. It worked great. You can easily edit the converted file. However, when I tried to use it to convert a PDF file in traditional Chinese, it didn't convert the file properly. Solid Converter is at a very reasonable price, only about 50 bucks. You can go to their website, and I believe they have a trial version. You can give it a try before you buy it. Good luck.
