Topic: how can i make half a page into a .pdf file?

Hello, I have a 'mini-catalog' in .doc format that is an 8.5 x 11 page in landscape mode - the left side of the page is one 'page' in the catalog, the other side is another page. I use a template that allows me print out pages that instead of being 8x11 are 4x5.5 and it allows 2 half size pages front and back to be printed for each 8x11 sheet of paper. I made an 12 page catalog because page 1 and 12 are on the same sheet (the same for 2,11 and 3,10 and 4,9 and 5,8 and lastly pages 6 and 7). By printing double sided, I then fold the pages together and it's a 'mini-catalog'.

I want to create a pdf that is in page 1 through 12 format, ignoring whether the user would print it or not. Is there a way to automatically convert half pages into full pages or to 'select' half the page myself and save into another file and then do that for the remaining 11 pages?

Any help is appreciated!
