Intelligent Conversion Technology

Based on ABBYY’s award-winning optical character recognition (OCR) technology, PDF Transformer delivers superior quality of PDF conversion. By leveraging OCR, it accurately “reads” text on any type of PDF files (including image-only or scanned PDFs) in 184 languages. To optimize the conversion performance, the program also intelligently analyses a PDF file and its text layer and makes a decision as to whether or not OCR processing should be applied to the entire document.

Processing of All Types of PDF Files*

ABBYY PDF Transformer processes any type of PDF file, including scanned (image-only) PDFs, searchable PDFs, password-protected PDFs (the program will prompt you to enter the correct passwords for content extraction), PDFs with text in non-standard encoding, and documents in the latest PDF 1.7 format.

Accurate Re-creation of Document Layout and Formatting

When converting PDF files, ABBYY PDF Transformer not only captures text but also re-creates all formatting elements, titles, tables, columns, pictures, charts, hyperlinks and internal links, etc. There’s no need to retype or reformat your documents. In addition, PDF Transformer 3.0 supports ABBYY’s revolutionary Adaptive Document Recognition Technology (ADRT) which intelligently re-creates logical structure of documents across multiple pages and outputs PDF files in native Microsoft Word formatting. It accurately reproduces headers, footers, page numbering, footnotes, fonts, font styles, and captions to images across all pages of a document. If you apply any changes to number of pages, footnotes or captions in your output document, they will be reflected at once within the entire document.

Verified Purchase
Not sure why , But I received the '.Education' product from Amazon. I loaded it onto my PC which has Windows 7 professional, and the machine almost immediately crashed. Thanks to Windows 7 troubleshooting software I was able to find that this edition of PDF Transformer in it's full version was not suitable for Windows 7. I found and downloaded a 'fix' and the programme is now ok. as supplied
