I try to convert a PDF to a word file. Finally I got the transfer to work, but the Word File comes out all garbled. Cannot understand a word of it. Some letters small, some capitalized, documents not in their correct slots. Can anyone assist ???  Thanks

Sounds like you might have a font problem. They need to be embedded into the PDF before converting into a Word file.

This is covered in several other similar posts, but the short story is:

 

Your fonts need to be embedded into the PDF.

Ideally, that should have been done when the PDF was created, but most likely wasn't.

And they must be Unicode / OpenType fonts to incorporate the Korean set of glyphs.

 

Refer to this similar post: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/need-help-with-acrobat-to-word-export-certain-paragraphs-are-...

 

You'll need to:

  1. Exxamine the PDF and find out which fonts were originally used (File/Properties / Fonts tab), and which fonts are used in the text that is not conveying correctly.
  2. Get copies of those fonts on your computer. Make sure they are OpenType/Unicode versions, not old PostScript or old TrueType.
  3. Embed the fonts into the PDF; follow the instructions above.
  4. Then export as Word.docx from Acrobat.
