ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0

ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0

<p> Adobe dominates the PDF (Portable Document Format) market with its free Reader and Acrobat Standard (£275 ex. VAT), Pro (£445) and Pro Extended (£649) creation/management products. However, Adobe's premium pricing and opening up of the PDF standard in 2008 have helped to created a lively 'Acrobat-alternative' market, which includes ABBYY's <a href="http://pdftransformer.abbyy.com/">PDF Transformer 3.0</a>. At £59.99 (boxed, or £55.95 to download), this is a usable PDF conversion and creation application that gets the job done quickly with minimal effort. </p>

Nuance PDF Converter Professional 6

<p> Adobe's free Reader and Acrobat Standard (£275 ex. VAT), Pro (£445) and Pro Extended (£649) PDF creation/management products dominate the market, which is hardly surprising considering the company developed the portable document exchange format in 1993. Now that PDF is an open ISO standard, anyone can create a program to manipulate PDFs. <a href="http://www.nuance.com/">Nuance</a> (formerly ScanSoft) is pitching its latest PDF solution, <a href="http://www.nuance.com/imaging/pdfconverter/pdfconverter-professional.asp">PDF Converter Professional 6</a>, squarely at the business market. There are plenty of third-party programs and utilities that let you convert to and from PDFs, but there's a lot of variation in approach and effectiveness. Some of the cheaper products, for instance, make it easy to convert a PDF to a Word or Excel file, but the results often require a lot of editing to make them resemble the structure of the original document. </p>

Nitro PDF Professional 6

<p> Almost all 'knowledge workers' encounter PDF (Portable Document Format) files in the office &mdash; be it on a casual or episodic basis, or as part of a structured and regular workflow. Introduced in 1993, PDF has only been an open standard since July 2008, so it's not surprising that its creator Adobe still dominates the PDF market with its free Reader and <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/contentcreation/0,1000001069,39439628,00.htm">Acrobat</a> Standard (£275 ex.
