Most accurate docx to pdf conversion we have found

We have found our experience with Zamzar over the years we have used it to be fantastic. They were receptive to a tiered pricing structure as our requirements changed, have a friendly support team that is always helpful and their API that we use daily to send documents to for conversion has always been available and had no issues.

Pros

We looked at several docx to pdf cloud based converters a couple of years back that could recreate the layouts and fonts that we used in our documents. None that we tried were able to accurately convert the documents apart from Zamzar. We had originally questioned whether the cost to use the service was worth it but when you consider the complexities of building your own solution and maintaining it we realised that the cost was largely irrelevant. We use Zamzar's developer API in order to send docx files to it and have them returned back to our software. It has been rock solid over the last couple of years with no down time. The time to convert a file is always been within 5 seconds (I think).

Cons

If we really had to nitpick, we would love it if we didn't have to poll the API to check to see when the document had been converted and instead it could be more efficient if they could provide us with a web hook (maybe this is possible and we just haven't asked!).

Reasons for choosing Zamzar

It had the most accurate conversion of docx to pdf files.

Very reliable file conversions of high quality

Pros

The service just works. We've tried other file conversion services in the past, and the results were very disappointing. With Zamzar, the results are consistently good. Also, their support is friendly and responsive.

Cons

No real cons. The product is great. If I *had* to find one con, it's the inability to have several separate api keys for different environments. I ended up having more than one account with them to accomodate this. Not a huge deal.

Reasons for choosing Zamzar

Quality of conversion, responsiveness of their support team.

Hassle-free web-based file conversion tool

Pros

Zamzar is extremely easy to use - you upload the original file, select the target format and wait for a moment while the file is being converted. The software handles an extensive list of file formats and types, not only in the document domain, but also for multimedia or even e-books (!).

Cons

Even though Zamzar does process design-heavy files (pdf and the like) into editable document formats, the layout and text quality leaves quite a lot to be desired - so in these cases it's much better to employ proper OCR software and/or an actual human operator.

Be Careful

I decided to try their free converter. The site made me use my credit card. I tried four images and then never used them again as I had the images converted professionally. Zamzar started to charge me. I received no email bill or anything. After three months I noticed a charge on my credit card. I had to Google them as I forgot who they were even, then go to their site and sign in and manually cancel. I use software from many companies and they all send an email invoice or confirmation except for Zamzar. It is a small amount so it is under the radar. I feel it is intentional and they scam people knowing most will not notice.

Pros

It was fairly easy to use and try overall

Cons

Hidden billing, started being charged and received no confirmation email or invoice

Great way to doctor PDFs

Good program...better when it was free but the best one I'm aware of.

Pros

As far as I can tell this is the best converting software out there and I've used a few. I believe this is referring to Zamzar based on the logo...anyways, when you convert a PDF on this program it comes over the way it looked on the PDF, pretty logical right? However, all their competitors aren't as clean at this process. Other software options, while converting a PDF, send the docx over in a weird format and sometimes so bad that it is unusable. Zamzar sends it over the way it is supposed to work..you can quickly edit and re-save without issue.

Cons

It used to be totally free but recently someone must of purchased them or they changed their business plan because now you can only do two free conversions every 24 hours which does cramp my style a bit. The pricing is pretty reasonable I guess but I'm fighting as to whether we move on it. This is why I know some of these other programs because I wanted to find another free version.
