Since I handle hundreds of PDF file everyday for blogging and study, I like to test softwares related to PDF like PDF Editors, Converters and Readers. Today while browsing Anvsoft’s site I found that they have recently released a free PDF converter PDFMate for Windows. Anvsoft have also launched a new webpage for the product.
- PDFMate free can easily convert PDF to Text files, EPUB Ebooks, common images in formats of JPG, PNG, etc, HTML files, and even SWF. It cannot convert PDF to Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
- Installation of PDFMate is clean, smooth and fast. It automatically creates desktop icon without asking.
- PDFMate free is multilingual and presently supports four languages: English, German, French and Chinese.
- PDFMate free interface looks cool. The only problem is that the interface is large enough to cover most of your screen and unfortunately there is no option to resize it.
- PDFMate free allows launching multiple instances.
- PDFMate free automatically checks for update on startup.
- PDFMate free can be used without any technical knowledge. All you need to do is 1-2-3 click: Add PDF > Select conversion type > Click “Convert”. For further help there is a well documented offline help file associated with it.
- PDFs can be loaded into PDFMate either by browsing from the UI or by “drag and drop”.
- Thanks to its batch conversion mode, PDFMate free can convert even hundreds of PDF files at one time, quickly and effectively.
- You can choose to convert the whole original PDF file to other formats, or just extract some specific content for your further usage.
- Output can be saved in the same folder as the original file or in a predefined folder. It automatically renames output file name if similar named files are present there.
- It is able to convert encrypted but not password protected files without hassle.
- Conversion of PDF by PDFMate is fast and it keeps original text, images, graphics, etc. It uses moderate resources during conversion.
- PDFMate is a complete freeware. But there is a chance of a paid version since the process as well as the folders are named as PDFMateLite.
- The installer is digitally signed by AnvSoft Co., Ltd.
- The software is 25.679Kb large and has the following hashes. It is clean of malware.
