Actually there are two methods to convert the documents PDF to Word either using an offline PDF to Word converter or online tools. Lets start with online tools:
Use Google Drive to Convert files from PDF to Word:
If your pdf files contain mostly text and no images etc, then this is the best, easiest and free tool to convert the documents from PDF to Word. here’s how to do it;
1. Login to your Google Drive account

Convert the PDF to Word with Microsoft Word:
