I have a pdf file which is in hindi, I need to convert it in word file. I have tried some online tools and desktop application that convert to convert to word successfully but after conversion I can't read that file. The converted file is full of unreadable characters. It looks like the conversion tool don't support pdf which are in hindi.

So, is there any way to deal this?thanks

It seems like that file is password protected because in the status field it says.... Need Password. – Deb Jun 9 '13 at 11:01

If the PDF is lock with password or restrictions use:
