I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.


Used it for over a year to convert my bank statements to csv files. Great quick app, increased my productivity a lot. Also, amazing support - always helped me quickly!

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.


I have been so thankful for Zamzar’s support from the beginning of the Pandemic to the present day. Their service is first rate & their helpfulness is always the best it could be.


A very useful and professional site. The service is easy to use and the administrators are helpful and courteous.

I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.

Christopher Bee

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

I feel like Zamzar is an active team member, especially for projects that I work on where I am the workhorse and it saves so much time and frustration. I am spoiled with Zamzar, because they have set the bar for file conversion and customer service very high.

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

AZW eBook Format

AZW Converter

An AZW file is more commonly known as an Amazon Kindle e-Book file and was developed, unsurprisingly, by Amazon. The AZW file has been built specifically with the Kindle in mind which means the format itself contains instructions around formatting, page numbers and chapter details as well as being able to have a title page with basic graphics. The AZW file is not totally dissimilar to an M4V file in that it uses DRM protection which is designed to prevent piracy. i.e. AZW files should, in theory, only be allowed to be opened by authorised devices. To open an AZW file users require a Kindle or Cool Reader for Windows.

PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

AZW files can be converted to PDF using an ebook software like Calibre or by using file conversion software or websites like Zamzar. The online tool on Zamzar’s website is free for most users and there are just three steps – upload your AZW file, click to convert it to PDF and then download the PDF.

To export an AZW file using Amazon, so that you have it on your device to convert, you need to log into your account, find the book in your library, click on the ‘Actions’ button, and then select ‘Deliver to Default Device or Others’.

If you bought the Kindle AZW file from Amazon, you should be able to download it by logging into your account library. Then a quick way to convert it to PDF is to use a file conversion tool like Zamzar. Just upload one or more AZW files to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, click to convert them to PDF, and then download the PDF files. You can also install file conversion software or an ebook editor like Calibre on your device and use that, but by using a cloud-based tool like Zamzar you can convert files without installing anything new.

AZW files are designed for the Amazon Kindle, so if you want to read one on another device, you will probably need to convert it to another format. It’s easy to do this using file conversion software or an online tool like Zamzar. Just upload an AZW file to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, select another format like PDF, EPUB or MOBI, and then click to convert it, before downloading the converted file. You can then read this converted file using your preferred ereader. Alternatively, you can also use Calibre or a similar ebook software to open your AZW files for reading.

One of the quickest ways to convert an AZW file is to use an online file conversion tool like Zamzar. As Zamzar’s tool is cloud-based, you don’t need to install any extra software and it’s free for most users. Just upload an AZW file, select another format like PDF, EPUB or MOBI, and then click ‘Convert Now’. You can then download your new copy of the file. It’s also possible to install an ebook management app like Calibre, which you can then use to manage and convert ebooks like AZW files.

AZW files will normally only open on Kindles or with the Kindle app, so if you don’t have access to these you would need to convert your file to another format that you can open on your device. Zamzar’s free three-step conversion tool is an easy way to convert from AZW to another format like PDF. Simply upload one or more AZW files, select the format to convert them to, and then download the new files.

Another way is to install an ebook management software like Calibre on your device, and then use this to open the file.
