After you read the following and do not understand, I will answer questions off-list,
I work in this 30 years, I do not expect everyone to understand in a few words.
There are 2 ways to create a PDF file. Enter data and save as PDF, scan
or take a photo and create the photo as PDF.
As far as I know the second way will not be able to convert to text.
The first way. if a document was written in a word processor
spreadsheet or any application that saves characters and saved/exported as PDF,
then I can try converting it in Linux operating system using "pdftotext". I do not know if the
software is available in Windows or iOS.
There is a second potential problem. Only in the last few years has there been a
"standard" that most software displays Hebrew. I think different fonts display Hebrew
using different binary codes.
If you can translate the PDF to text and it looks like encoded spy message,
I can attempt to translate this to other fonts using a program I wrote many years ago
If I can help anyone, please send me off-list using the subject field "help translate".
