Nitro PDF Software Launches Free Online Word-to-PDF Conversion Service
Latest Addition to Free Family Cements Company's Status as Leading Provider of Free PDF Solutions
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) - Nitro PDF Software, the company behind the acclaimed free Nitro PDF Reader, recipient of CNET's prestigious Editors' Choice Award, today announced the launch of Word to PDF, a free online conversion service and the latest addition to its ever-expanding range of free PDF solutions. This release comes less than three weeks after the company permanently transformed the PDF landscape with the introduction of Nitro Reader, the world's first free PDF viewer / creator.
Word to PDF offers free, high-quality conversion of .DOC, .DOCX, and .RTF files originating from Microsoft® Word™ to PDF, as well as alternate solutions supporting the aforementioned formats; including OpenOffice Writer, Corel® WordPerfect®, Lotus® Symphony®, and more.
"Word to PDF helps to round out what we've offered to date with our hugely-popular PDF to Word and PDF to Excel services," said Gina O'Reilly, Nitro's SVP of Sales & Marketing. "The compatibility issues arising from Word's thirty-plus-years of legacy formats, combined with the growing number and popularity of alternate solutions create substantial demand for the ability to distribute documents in a universally-accepted and secure format, which can only be PDF."
With no required registration, users simply select the file they wish to upload for conversion, and provide an email address for delivery of the completed PDF file. Continuing Nitro's tradition of offering uncompromised, genuinely free products, the process is unimpeded by commercial product offerings and users need to opt-in if they wish to accept correspondence from Nitro to the email address supplied.
The service also includes an optional poll where users can vote for and rate the importance of additional features to be considered for future inclusion.
