Overview Of The Various PDF Converters Including Nuance PDF Converter & The Adobe Acrobat Range
Since its development by Adobe in 1993, the Portable Document Format (or PDF) has become an industry standard for efficient, accurate document reproduction and transmission. The format not only meets legal document requirements, but allows for the preservation of original formatting, along with greater protection from virus infection and compatibility with almost all operating systems.
Today, there is a wide range of programs available enabling users to create and edit PDF files from existing documents. As the founders of the format, Adobe have a wealth of experience and an excellent range of programs available, from the simple and efficient Acrobat Standard to the powerful Acrobat X range. Industry competitors Nuance also display great control over the format, and produce business-oriented, streamlined programs for file conversion. When deciding on a PDF converter, it is useful for users to contrast and compare some of the key features available with each program.
PDF Converters From Adobe
- Acrobat X Standard enables one-click conversion from Microsoft Office applications, internet browsers, emails, and scanned documents. It simplifies document review by providing familiar tools for marking up PDF files, and the ability to compile content into a single document for easy transmission.
- Acrobat X Pro combines the features of Standard with the ability to insert multimedia such as audio and Flash compatible video into PDF documents. It is designed for preparing PDF files for high-end production, providing the ability to organize broad content types into a polished portfolio, and automating tasks for increased efficiency. Pro also allows for digital signatures and permanent deletion of sensitive information (called redaction) for greater security.
- Acrobat X Suite includes Acrobat X Pro and Adobe Photoshop CS5 along with a range of rich media applications for exceptional professional presentation. Files can be converted and compiled using the PDF Portfolio Wizard, and then highly customized and enriched using Photoshop editing software, integration of video and audio elements, and corporate logos and colours.
PDF Converters From Nuance
Nuance enables users to convert PDF documents into Microsoft Office formats, with high-end products also enabling conversion into PDF. They provide three programs in their PDF Converter 7 range, which includes these software downloads:
- Converter 7 is particularly useful for extracting and editing information from PDF documents by converting them into all Microsoft Office formats, singly or in batches. Text, tables, charts and graphics can be accessed and edited within their original formatting, and PDF pages can be combined into an Excel spreadsheet for efficient editing.
- Converter Professional 7 has improved integration with Office 2010 and Windows 7 features, as well as the ability to convert paper documents into PDF. Its new "Looks Like" search capability allows users to search alphanumeric patterns (such as phone numbers) instead of exact text, and enables editing within PDF files. Advanced tools for PDF creation enable secure and detailed professional PDF documents.
- Converter Enterprise 7 provides the features of the Professional software with a simple drag-and-drop system for compiling PDF portfolios, as well as a highly advanced redation system for removing sensitive data.
