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.

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.

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.

PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

A PDF also goes by the full name of a Portable Document Format and was created by Adobe Systems at the start of the 90s. It was created as a way of allowing people to present documents in a cleaner, crisper way and in a way that allowed them to open that document on any operating system. PDF files often include graphics of some form and tend to be used in professional settings.

PDF files are able to include all sorts of rich text as well as different graphics - both vector and raster images. The reason the PDF can be so rich in terms of features is because of the way it was built by Adobe. A specific language, called PostScript, was used to generate the layout and because of the way the PDF is designed - split into elements - it tends to be a lightweight format from a storage perspective which again adds to its widespread appeal.

CSV Document Format

CSV Converter

A CSV file is so called because the values contained within the file are separated using commas. CSV files often go hand in hand with spreadsheets as it allows plain text data to be saved in a tabular format. They tend to be used when there’s a need to transfer a large, and sometimes complex, data set from one place to another - often an application that can display this data in a more digestible way. An application like Excel even has a wizard that makes importing a CSV file that much more simple.

The structure of a CSV file is relatively simple which is not surprising given it’s meant to make data that perhaps looks complex and involved and break it down into something simple and easy to read. A really simple way to illustrate a CSV file would Name,Number,Job - John Doe,0123456789,IT Manager. When a user then imports that CSV file into an application like, say, Excel, the Name, number and job will all be in separate cells and will be nicely organised in a tabular format that is then a lot easier to read for the end user.
