Have you ever needed to convert a file from one type to another? Maybe you need to turn your Word document into a PDF. Perhaps you were trying to convert some type of media file.
Zamzar could be your solution. You simply upload the file to be converted, select the type of file you want to turn it into, enter your email address, and submit. Zamzar then does the work and emails your file back to you. Cool, right?
The downside I see to Zamzar, at least currently, is that it doesn’t provide for several common document file types like Word Perfect. It seems more media-focused, providing lots of image, audio, and video file types. Perhaps they will expand the file type offering in time.
With that said, TechCrunch speaks well of it, explaining:
Up to five files can be converted simultaneously. The process takes a few minutes – Zamzar emails a link to the converted file when it is done. It worked well in our testing.
In the end, Zamzar could be a really useful tool for the lawyer on the go, needing to convert a file without the appropriate software. If you’re using the hotel’s business center and need to send a document to someone as a PDF, point the browser to Zamzar, and you’re off!
