Is there any webapp or website where I can upload a .pdf file and get it converted into .docx file or .doc file?

I have searched a lot, but all of them convert .pdf to .rtf and opening .rtf is a little difficult on Linux Based Systems.

Can anybody help me out here.

And if you open the .rtf with Google Docs and then save it as .docx? (I know you can import .docx files, I don’t know if you can export them as well with Google Docs.) – Alex May 4 '12 at 9:11
Why do you need a docx file? Why not just a doc file? @Alex Docs doesn't support save as docx, doc files are supported \ – Sathya May 4 '12 at 9:29
@Sathya I have edited my question. – user221287 May 4 '12 at 9:31
Then Google Docs becomes a real option: import the rtf file you already have in Google Docs and then save it on you computer as a Word (doc) file. – Alex May 4 '12 at 9:35
@Alex But isn't Google Docs famous for spoiling the formatting of .doc files? – user221287 May 4 '12 at 9:36

PDF to Word can do this for you. I have used it myself previously.

Google Docs can perform an OCR scan on-the-fly. It will create, from a PDF for example, a google doc file.

See reference: Google Drive; OCR

you can go to www.zamzar.com and then upload the file, choose what you want to convert it to, then they'll send it to you through email.
