Power PDF Standard

Powerful PDF functionality. Award winning simplicity.

A clean, familiar look

If you’ve worked with Microsoft Office, the intuitive and uncluttered interface of Power PDF Standard will make you feel right at home.

Effortless file conversion

Quick, accurate document conversion from Word and other formats and back again. Batch processing makes converting multiple files a breeze.

Collaboration made simple

Tools business teams need to annotate, mark up, secure and compress PDFs are built in, to make working as a group easier than ever.

Built with your needs in mind

Nuance built Power PDF Standard with the needs of students, home office and small business users – people like you – in mind. You’ll see the difference in our intuitive user interface, features optimized for as few clicks as possible and advanced capabilities like commenting on PDFs via Dragon® Notes—all with 100% compliance to the new ISO PDF 2.0 standard so you can rest assured you’re creating the most compatible documents possible.

Get what you pay for

Freeware doesn't get the job done

The seemingly free PDF-editing solutions on the Web come with a cost. “Freemium” alternatives don’t offer the right tools or functionality you need. Power PDF Standard lets you create interactive PDFs in any Windows application, provides document access in the cloud, advanced search functions and much more.

PDF standard: accuracy

The accuracy you and your co-workers deserve

Whether you’re creating PDFs from paper documents, or converting PDF files to common formats like Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, “close enough” accuracy isn’t good enough. Power PDF Standard uses Nuance’s industry-leading OmniPage OCR technology to deliver the most accurate versions of your documents – even reproducing complex layouts with columns, tables and graphics.
