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.


It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

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.

DOC Document Format

DOC Converter

A DOC file is also known as a Word Processing file format. It was originally made popular by Microsoft as part of their Microsoft Office suite. It’s use grew wider when Apple and others also bundled it into their OS.

If you’ve used a computer then chances are you’ve created and edited a DOC file. DOC files are primarily used to format text but users are also able to include images, charts and other non text features. Users will use the DOC format to write essays, resumes, letters and almost anything that needs to be typed out. DOC files are easily printed and are small in size so often are shared via email.

Almost all programs can open DOC files in some form even if some of the formatting/quality can be lost. Microsoft Word can be used on a variety of devices and operating systems and with each new release of Microsoft Office the DOC file seems to become more and more feature heavy whilst retaining its core purpose.

PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

The PDF format, or Portable Document Format file, was developed by Adobe Systems. PDF files are popular because they can be easily viewed and edited in a variety of computing platforms. Word documents can easily be exported or converted to PDF, and both presentations and images are also often saved out as a PDF file. Typically, PDF files are not created from scratch, but rather existing file types are converted into PDF format to allow the file to be easily shared and accessed.

PDF files normally look exactly like the original file, with fonts, colours and images all preserved. They can also be annotated and can be opened by almost any device and by any modern web browser. PDF files can be edited using Adobe Acrobat PDF software, which was developed almost 30 years ago and is available on Windows and MacOS.
