|We’ve Added New File Conversion APIs to our Library|
|11/16/2020 - Katherine Coyle|
I am excited to announce that we have recently updated one of our most popular offerings, our Conversion APIs! These updates include new functions that will help you automate and optimize your business such as Data File Conversion, PDF Editing and Conversion, and Document Conversion.
Convert Data Files
CSV to XML, XLSX to XML
We have added two new APIs for converting data to XML from CSV and XLSX. XML is a universal file format that is older and more widely used that JSON. This format is computer-readable and thus it is similar to HTML easily processed by online systems. However, it is not as constrained, as it is designed for storing any data type.
Edit PDF Documents
PDF to PDF/A
This API will convert PDF files to PDF/A-1b or PDF/A-2b standardized documents. PDF/A is an internationally standardized form of PDF in that it meets universal compliance and compatibility standards that may not be possible with the original PDF file type. Because of this, a PDF/A file will look the same across platforms while a PDF might become corrupted or face formatting errors.
PDF Reduce File Size
This function will optimize the content of a PDF document to minimize its file size. This is useful when scanning and sharing contracts or other signed documents, as the original PDF file may be too large to email. With this function, you can reduce the size of the file by digitally compressing its contents.
With this API, you can linearize the content of a PDF file to optimize it for streaming download, particularly over web streaming. By performing the function, your PDF file will be simplified internally, with the contents stored in the correct order for viewing. Thus, large files can be viewed while its contents are downloaded to improve your overall efficiency.
Revert Office Documents to Legacy Format
DOCX to DOC, XLSX to XLS, PPTX to PPT
For those who work with older versions of the Microsoft Office Suite, or who have partners that maintain usage of these programs, these new APIs will give you the capability to downgrade your Word (DOCX), Excel (XLSX), and PowerPoint (PPTX) documents to their legacy formats: DOC, XLS, and PPT.
