    I recommend PDFTextOnline. It's easy to use, free and works from your browser.

    Getting text and other content out of your PDF documents is often a hassle. Adobe Acrobat™ (or your other favorite PDF viewer) can do copy-and-paste, but that's time-consuming and tedious for anything but the smallest jobs. Acrobat™ also has a 'save as text' option, but unless you spring for Acrobat™ Professional, it often generates inaccurate text and simply cannot cope with some languages (especially Chinese, Japanese, and Korean).
