It doesn't get any quicker (though not dirtier) than to do this:

From within Word, select Print from the File menu.
When the Print dialog box comes up, the one where you would normally select the printer and its options, click on the middle button at the bottom, labeled Print to PDF.
This will bring up a file save dialog where you specify what the resulting PDF file should be named, and where it should be saved.

That's it.  This same procedure works from just about any OS X application that can print.

The resulting PDF can be read on other operating systems, though it is not the most space efficient result.
