How to Convert Word to PDF on Mac (Sierra Included)

Home > PDF Creating Tips > Convert Word to PDF on Mac

Over the past decade, individuals and organizations have embraced the Portable Document Format (PDF) as the main means of sharing and storing digital documents. PDF files are easy to share over Dropbox and email, more secure, and often more professional than most other file formats. Most online journal repositories and magazines only accept PDF submissions as opposed to other file formats such as Word.

Despite the obvious advantages presented by PDF, many people lack the knowledge to create PDF documents from most modern text processors. This has led to a steep rise in the number of free and paid converters available as either online or web-based applications. These applications usually vary in complexity and efficiency, so it is always good to carry out extensive research to find one that suits your needs, and convert Word to PDF on Mac with good output quality.
