    I haven't tried it personally but you may want to look into using the PDFKit

    Two methods you can go,
    1. Converting pdf to editable documents, such as, Word documents.
    you can try a free online converter to achieve this. you can find a list of them from

    2. Using a pdf editing tool to replace text in pdf file is more convenient that you will not in risk of wrecking formatting from pdf files. And you don't need to convert back to pdfs again, just saving changes and the modified text will be retained.
