Depends. The main thing is choosing the correct licence.

Did you have a licence in mind?

OCR is your best bet because PDF is effectively a lossy document format, in the sense that you lose the plain text behind it.
Hyphenated words for instance are hardcoded.
More often than not, at least some of the text was converted into vector graphics to ensure compatibility with systems that lack certain fonts, or to avoid licensing issues of proprietary fonts.
Some PDFs do still have the underlying plain text stored within them, but it's uncommon.
Just get a decent OCR software if you want to edit the text.

You said you wanted it free, so which freedom-respecting licence do you want to use?

Not him but he literally asked what license you are considering for the content of that file. I can't see how this is so hard to understand.

Because someone wanted to know how to convert a pdf into a Word document. You were the one who brought up licenses.

i use an app in my phone called WPS Office. Save the pdf on your phone and open it from the app.

Calibre can convert between all the major ebook formats (PDF included), and docx. It's probably in your repo, if not, get it here: calibre-ebook.com/download
