Using Illustrator to make infographics to be used in Microsoft word

I need to streamline my workflow.

 

I order to keep test from being blurry when I paste my images in MS word, I save each slide as a PDF and the from Word I open the PDF. This is the only way I found to have the text not blurry. My client wants to use the word doc onscreen and to print it.

 

My illustrator file has 13 layers (slides for infograpics) though. So I have to save 13 PDFs and open 13 individually from word and copy and paste each into a combined word doc. 

 

I should be able to shorten the tedious process. What can I do?

 

Thanks in advance.

So these are slides for a presentation?

Why does your client want to use Word and not PowerPoint?

There's an Illustrator plugin that you can use for the PowerPoint export and it works well.

The most convenient way is to use a pdf to word converter application. If you are on Mac you can try 

Wondershare PDFelement app.

Charine,

 

How about just using EMF (Enhanced Meta File) or SVG to keep it (the Type/text) vector? Like PDF, both may contain both vector graphics and components. The former is the MS Word format for that.
