Do PDF files give you headaches from time to time?
Well guess what, you're not alone...

Soda PDF helps you deal with PDFs quickly & reliably!

Thanks for checking softwarestars to find a solution for your PDF struggles. My name is Frank Bacher (founder of softwarestars.org) and I know the problems you can encounter when working with PDF files first hand. 

  1. ​PDFs are notoriously hard to edit and sometimes cannot be edited at all...
  2. It's difficult to convert PDF to Word, Excel or similar formats.
  3. Producing good looking PDF files from any application is often a hassle, too.

Once you've found a program that seems to do the task you need done, it's either unusable, unreliable, or you need about 10 different products to cover all your needs. Don't get me started on products that cost hundreds or are only available as a subscription...

What's OCR and do I need it?

Did you ever have the problem when you weren't able to work on a PDF after converting it to Word?

The reason for that is pretty easy: the program you or someone else used to create the PDF probably didn't have Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
That essentially means that the PDF is an image file that hasn't had OCR applied to it. Therefore, you can't work on it in Word as it still was just an image and not typed text.

If you know and detest that issue, all you need is Soda Premium + OCR. Thanks to its high quality OCR feature by I.R.I.S. you can now convert image PDFs to Word easily. It doesn't matter if these are your own or downloads from different websites. After applying the OCR, you can then edit the file in Soda PDF or in compatible Office applications.

If you want to stop worrying about PDF files, buy Soda PDF 9 Premium + OCR now! This top of the line version has all the functionality you'll ever need!
