Aspose Words - saving PDF as PDF/A

Is there any possibility to save using Words for .NET a PDF as a PDF/A? There is a timeframe for having this feature implemented?

Kind regards,

Hi Laurentiu,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please note Aspose.Words for .NET supports conversion of supported file formats to PDF/PDFA. However to convert a PDF document to PDFA you need to use Aspose.Pdf for .NET API, Please check following documentation link for sample code snippet and details. It will help you to accomplish the task.

Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance.

Best Regards,

I am having an Aspose.Words license and I want to save a word document directly as a PDF/A. You said that Words supports this conversion. Do I need to have to products from you in order to have this functionality?


Hi Laurentiu,

Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, you can just use the following Aspose.Words for .NET code to convert Word document to PDF/A-1a or PDF/A-1b standard:

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + @“in.docx”);

PdfSaveOptions opts = new PdfSaveOptions();

opts.Compliance = PdfCompliance.PdfA1a;

doc.Save(MyDir + @"17.4.pdf", opts);

Hope, this helps.

Best regards,
