To upload documents that contain special characters or formatting, you must upload the document in a PDF format. Uploading Word documents that contains text with special characters may be changed and distorted in the process.
This is highly recommended for Mac OS users who wish to upload any of their text documents.
To do so please follow these instructions:
- Within the word document, go to File -> Print
- Under the list of printers you have installed, select Acrobat Distiller or Adobe PDF, or another PDF converting tool.
- Then press OK.
- You should then be prompted to save the file onto your computer. This will be the name of the converted PDF.
