  • 1. Open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • 2. Click File / Properties menu. A dialog will open up.
  • 3. In this dialog there will be a 'Fonts' tab. Click the 'Fonts' tab. All the fonts used in the PDF file will be listed. If it is a 'Tamil' language pdf file there will also be tamil font listed (bamini, tsc, latha etc). Note down this 'tamil' font used in the PDF.
  • 4. Go to internet download the same font from internet and install the font on your pc.
  • 5. Now open a new word document as well as the tamil pdf file to convert.
  • 6. On the PDF document select all text and do a 'copy' (ctrl + c).
  • 7. Switch to word document and do 'paste' ( ctrl + v).

Well, If you have WORD and a scanner, Scan the Printed PDF into an OCR software suit, and export the outcome to Word.

That will do it.

The idea works, but it changes the last few letters incorrectly. For eg. varavillai in tamil becomes varavilsai. Why.
It is a single sentence i tried and got the wrong conversion.
