Copying Hebrew text from a PDF into a Translation tool - OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Help Request #general

This discussion has been of great interest to me.  When I was in Israel a few years ago, I copied with my Iphone over 150 pages of documents at various archives.
They are mostly in Hebrew, typewritten.   To my dismay I found that it was very difficult to convert the JPG to text that could be put into a translating service
such as Google translate.   The closest I got was garbage.   I will try some of the suggestions offered.  Thank you for the discussion.
