PDF File Conversion

I am involved in a social institution which often posts .pdfs from its web site.

I have discovered a wonderful trick.

Once I stumble on one of their .pdfs, I type enough key words into Google that it calls up.

Google has a .pdf to .html converter. It looks terrible, generally.

So, I ccp their results and email it to myself, without an email signature.

I was able to read an entire history of this organization's 10-year involvement with Romania by this method!

Totally legible. A whopper email: 3%, but well worth it!

I'm constantly in touch with this organization, so a fast fix is very useful.

Look at the last link listed on this page, unless Google moves thing 'round before you see this post!


I believe it's one of the .pdfs I 'translated,' ccped and emailed to myself.
