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.

EPUB eBook Format

EPUB Converter

EPUB is the standard open-source format for ebooks. EPUB is short for ‘electronic publication’. The format was developed in the mid-late 2000s by the International Digital Publishing Forum and is an alternative to formats like AZW, developed for the Kindle. EPUB files can be viewed on a wide range of e-readers and digital reading apps, including NOOK, Apple Books, Okular and Calibre. Amazon announced in 2022 that new Kindle models would also support EPUB files.

The EPUB standard is now maintained by a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) working group. The EPUB format comprises three open standards – one defining content markup, one describing the ebook structure, and one packaging all the files into a compressed format. EPUB files normally include an index page for navigation, and accessibility features to adjust text size or allow for text-to-speech. EPUB also has the potential to include interactivity, accessible image, video, or audio elements.

It’s really easy to convert a PDF document to EPUB format by using an online conversion tool like Zamzar.

With Zamzar’s three-step conversion tool, all you need to do is upload your PDF files (even multiple files at once), select EPUB and click to convert them. Your new EPUB files will then be ready to download in real time.

You will need to use a website or software to convert a PDF to an ebook. The conversion tool on Zamzar’s website is free if you only have a couple of files to convert, and there are only three steps – just upload your PDF, convert it, and download your EPUB file.

It’s easy to create an EPUB book using free online conversion tools like Zamzar, or downloaded file conversion software like Calibre.
