Software Overview

Nuance PDF Converter Professional is used for editing PDF files and converting them into other file formats. It can convert PDFs into fully-formatted forms, spreadsheets, and other document types. In 2019, Nuance was acquired by Kofax and PDF Converter Professional is no longer developed.

PDF Converter Professional enables users to edit text and graphics directly within PDF files. For example, users can fix typos, move images, then save the file as a new PDF. The program features document recognition technology, which accurately recognizes and converts PDF content. For example, Nuance’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology intelligently recognizes text and the Logical Form Recognition (LFR) technology converts PDF forms into Microsoft Word documents. The software can also recognize and convert tables, charts, graphics, and other document elements.

PDF Converter Professional supports a variety of document formats. The program can create new PDF files from several different document formats. It can also create popular office file types, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Corel WordPerfect, and Rich Text Format (.RTF) files. In addition to PDF files, the program can also convert XML Paper Specification (.XPS) files. The software can convert text from over 100 languages and supports multi-lingual documents.

PDF Converter Professional is a solid program for home and business users looking to convert and edit PDF files. It allows users to edit the contents of PDF files and save PDFs in other popular office formats. Although not as useful as Adobe Acrobat, Nuance PDF Converter Professional is a suitable program for editing PDF files.
