I have been recently contacted by Mia at PDF to Excel to notify me of their website. I have looked into the website and initially I was intrigued as I do get asked about both of these file formats when assisting users.
Firstly, the website itself is very useful and after having a quick go I was able to convert a fairly simple PDF to an excel document. Surprisingly any colours used within the PDF itself were converted too. Fantastically this saves time having to re-colour everything.
The service is available in English, Spanish and French. Hola and Bonjour to my fellow linguists!
PDF To Excel Features include:
- Drag and Drop upload
- Import from Dropbox
- Import from Google Drive
- Importing from Microsoft OneDrive
- .Xslx Format (Microsoft Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 support)
- No user sign up is required
- Scanned PDF’s reognised
PDF to Excel states the process is secure. I would have liked to have seen a SSL certificate on the main site as it helps to enforce the secure feeling, although I believe one is used on the back-end for file transfer and conversion.
It took a matter of seconds for my test PDF to be converted, PDF to Excel have stated it may take a little longer for those trickier ones but I would not worry because the responsiveness of their site is phoenomial.
In conclusion, PDF to Excel goes above and beyond the competitors who have similar online conversion although I love the fact it does not require any form of sign up as this truly is more of an annoyance rather than beneficial on convertors. They have done this correctly and it keeps data known about the user to a minimum! Best of all, the whole experience is free for you and me.
