I think that You will need an extra application like Adobe Acrobat. Converting PDF to Word is not so easy (on any OS). I tried this once on a Windows PC, but the result was so bad, that I gave up. I don't know how many documents You have and what You need them for. But sometimes it is just quicker to just copy the text from the PDF and to paste it in a word editor and to edit it there.
Also, you may try this tutorial about how to convert PDF files to Word on Mac. Once they're converted, you can open the files Microsoft Word or a compatible word processor.
Hope it can do you a favor.

You can convert your existing Word documents into PDF files with a click of a button and to your surprise, you may find that the resulting file is highly optimized and much smaller than the original Word file. If you are worried about whether there is any compromise on the quality, you can be rest assured, there is no loss of quality when you convert the files.Follow

The easy solution seems to be: installing adobe acrobat reader on his computer... it's free and reads pdf... Even for a total computer newbie that should not be a problem as long as he has an internet connection...

PDFZilla works fine, but it costs money after the free trial runs out. If you have a printer with a scanner on it, you'll probably find an OCR (optical character recognition) software program bundled on the installation disk. Just print out the PDF, scan it in through the OCR program, then save it as .doc or docx.
