Hire PDF Editors

PDF stands for Portable Document Format and is a file format for capturing and sending electronic documents. PDF enables anyone to capture documents from any application, send digital files of these documents anywhere, and view and print them anywhere. A PDF editor is a professional who is well versed with PDF and can design and edit documents.

What PDF Editors Do?

A PDF editor is like a graphic designer who works on text, graphics and spreadsheets in the PDF format. They create interactive PDF files – where one can enter text, save, print, search and edit. A PDF editor develops content and converts it from one format into the PDF. They are essentially PDF experts who can perform a number of services. They can convert PDF files to different formats such as Word, Excel and Power-point and also convert these formats into a PDF. They also insert pictures, logos and watermarks to an existing PDF file.

They undertake conversion, compression, unlocking and merging. PDF compression is the reduction in the size of a PDF image in order to make it compatible for web uploads, printing and emails. PDF unlocking is removing the password protection from a PDF file. PDF merging is the process of combining two or more PDF files. PDF editors may also create fillable forms that are hosted on a company website and those that can be submitted back to the company directly through the website.

Most of the PDF experts also act as PDF designers, where they draft the layout and design the content of the PDF.

If you wish to hire PDF editors online, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Edit the PDF without losing any vital information.
  • Redesign the layout of the edited file.
  • Handle design and corrections of book reprints as requested.
  • Design advertising and promotional material for marketing and publicity.

Qualifications of a PDF Editor

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • Professional education in art or design
  • Solid knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator 
  • A keen eye for aesthetics and for detail
  • Ability to create original designs or recreate designs as per the client’s needs

When looking to hire PDF editors online, be sure to have a look at their portfolio and conduct a reference check.

Benefits of a Freelance PDF Editor
