    You can add form fields to a pdf with Adobe Acrobat Pro (not Reader), this will allow you to edit text, however you'll be stuck with basic fonts and you'll have save it as a rights extended pdf in order to be able to save changes to the text fields with Adobe Reader (I'm assuming your client doesn't want to dish out any extra money, so they probably wouldn't be inclined to purchase/rent? Acrobat Pro).

    I would probably tell them that there isn't a good method to do so without them purchasing and learning software.

    note: you can make minor edits, like typos, with Acrobat Pro, but it isn't designed for major edits, like replacing a paragraph of text, and it can behave erratically when using it's editing tools, so I'd suggest not relying on it.

      Actually - Acrobat XI has greatly enhanced it's text editing capabilities.

      There are other ways to get text into a PDF using Acrobats tools in both the Reader and Full version.

        Acrobat XI has some pretty flexible ways to edit text and is greatly improved from other versions.

        You can use the Typewriter tool to insert text

          Well there you are, still they only edited a few words, and you are still limited in your font choices, what if your client wants to smear bleeding cowboy all over your work?

            It's all a changing! You can now pick fonts now - not entirely sure on the workflow as the products fly out of Adobes ass faster than I can afford to buy them - but if someone wants to smear anything even a bleeding cowboy - they will find a way!

            PS I know it's a font lol

              I agree with HotButton on just about everything here --especially the extra question parks.

              What PrintDriver said, is accurate for pro-level work. However, since you're on a budget, you can get by with less.

              Hey, I'm from the middle east, in my twenties, just found my passion for design, and I'm sure I can rock this.
              I know nothing much yet, but I hope I would learn many from here
