PDF is an adobe registered name for the portable document format.

The acronym does not seem to be translated anywhere. In fact, someone asked this same question about a month ago.

Archivo PDF


Explanation:
Se denomina Archivo PDF. De todas maneras, en la sección de ayuda de la versión en castellano del Programa Acrobat Reader aparece traducido como formato de documento portable.

Al igual que el colega anterior, recuerdo que alguien ha formulado la misma consulta no hace mucho tiempo.

Do not translate the acronym


Explanation:
PDF, even if there is a translation for it, doesn't need to be translated. It is a widely accepted acronym in many languages. The other suggested translations are acceptable. However, if your question is about the validity of the acronym itself, the answer is yes.

Documento con extensión PDF


Explanation:
He visto respuestas muy buenas, como archivo PDF o formato PDF, pero creo que ésta es más adecuada, ya que el acrónimo de la extensión da la información necesaria
