about Nuance PDF Reader Jun 2011

Unique ability to convert pdf to excel-files, but long registration procedure and only english
If you install Nuance PDF Reader you must fill out 6 sheets with detailed information about your person, income, address, and so on.
It is unusual complicated.
Until now I did not find supplementing files for enabling a german or another language user interface.
The only language is english.
Files to convert you must send to the Nuance Online Conversion Service. The converted files are sent to you per e-mail.
