Two options Mar 4, 2013

I use Solid Converter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid_Converter_PDF) and it's OK for converting most unscanned PDFs.

I also have Omnipage from Nuance (http://www.nuance.com/for-business/by-product/omnipage/index.htm), which is more expensive and slightly more complicated to use. It is more powerful (it has more features) than Solid and can handle scanned PDfs.

Same question once a week Mar 4, 2013

The same question is asked nearly weekly. Please, could you first have a look into the forum? You won't likely get very different answers...

Agree with Miriam - Abbyy FineReader Mar 4, 2013

I use it for few years already and will continue to do so.

Almost always happy with the result. Conversion to word, excel, etc. Many source languages packs available as extensions.
You can try it for free.

Good luck:-)

Stay away from Abby! Mar 4, 2013

From my experience Abby is the absolute worst program to OCR or to convert PDF to Word.

You'd be better off formatting via hand and charging a formatting fee.

Trevor, you should just learn how to use ABBYY Mar 4, 2013

It is absolutely the best OCR program ever.

Word 2013 Mar 4, 2013

does it by default. One very good reason to upgrade. For people short of cash, try Wondershare PDF to Word Converter (free edition). I have tried it and it's the best PDF to Word converter I have come across.

ABBYY PDF Transformer Mar 4, 2013

I've been using ABBYY PDF Transformer for some years now - recently upgraded to v3.0. I've found it does everything I require and is easy to learn. It's also a bit cheaper than than the same company's FineReader. I bought the cheaper one (half the price) because I couldn't get a sensible answer out of ABBYY as to the difference in functionality between the two.

PDF Transformer Mar 4, 2013

I have been using ABBYY PDF Transformer for years, with excellent results. The key to success with it seems to be to specify the source formatting (text, table or images) manually, which only takes a few seconds per page, unless the document is pure text. Doing it this way does a great job on even complex formats.

WordFast anywhere Mar 4, 2013

I think I've used WordFast anywhere for this in the past. www.freetm.com Was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
