Convert PDF to PDF/A using Python | Save PDF to PDF/A-1a, PDF/A-1b, PDF/A-3a

In this article, we are going to discuss the conversion of PDF to PDF/A using Python code. We know that PDF/A is an ISO-standardized version of the Portable Document Format (PDF) specialized for use in the archiving and long-term preservation of electronic documents. Furthermore, the PDF/A differs from PDF by prohibiting features unsuitable for long-term archiving, such as font linking (as opposed to font embedding) and encryption. However, it contains everything needed to display it and nothing which could negatively impact the display.
