Why Convert Office Files to PDF?

Two main reasons you might want to convert Office files to PDF are file consistency and file security. Let’s look at some of the benefits of converting your files from Office to PDF.

Benefits of file consistency:

  • PDF displays the exact same content and layout no matter which operating system, device, or software application it is viewed on. Converting Microsoft Office files to PDF retains the applied formatting and ensures a consistent viewing experience when files are shared.
  • If you need a file that complies with certain industry standards, like ZUGFeRD, PDF/A, or ISO, a PDF can meet those standards better than Office documents due to its universality.
  • Unlike Microsoft Office, there are limited versions of PDF. This means that regardless of the version, the PDF will always be accessible to anyone who needs to view it.

Benefits of file security:

  • It’s easy to secure a PDF file with a password so that the contents of the PDF are protected from anyone not authorized to view it. Once a PDF file is password-protected, it can only be accessed by entering the correct password.
  • Once you convert Office files to PDF, you can securely share or transfer them over email or messaging apps like Slack or Discord, or you can securely save them in a repository or database.
