Convert PDF files into XML format

Adobe PDF is very popular format for high-quality printing and sharing information over the Internet. But what if you need to get more from PDF document? For example, extract certain parts of data using your own program or script. The most suitable solutions for this purpose is to convert the original PDF document into XML, wide popular format of structured data.

However there is bottleneck in this conversion process. Unlike XML, PDF format doesn't have any tags to identify table structures. Each PDF document is just a set of small text chunks having coordinates that allow high-quality viewing and printing. For example, to extract tables from PDF document you need to recognize each table via analyzing cell offsets and/or graphic borders. But keep in mind that border styles are very different and cell offsets can fluctuate.

Sounds complicated, doesn't it? Indeed, PDF to XML conversion algorithm is not simple at all. That's why Intelligent Converters released easy-to-use yet powerful utility for such a task. The product has intuitive interface and supports command line to allow experienced users automate the conversion. Other features:

  1. Resulting document is compatible with XML 1.0 and higher
  2. Recognizes most kind of PDF tables
  3. Converts selected PDF pages
  4. Adobe Acrobat is not required

PDF-to-XML does not support optical character recognition (OCR), so it is not possible to extract data from scanned PDF documents. Still not sure the program fits your needs?
