Windows 7: Adding text to a .pdf file

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Adding text to a .pdf file

I have an official document that I have scanned in to a .pdf file, and I want to add some text that says 'I certify that this is a true copy of this document' (I do not want to change the document itself, and this will save me having to write this text on 20 pages).

Is there a simple (and cheap) way of doing this, short of buying Acrobat Pro?

What have your google searches yielded? I found this:

How to edit PDF forms without Adobe - YouTube

I have no idea if it works.

Hello Jcaswell,

You might see if the free program Nitro PDF Reader may allow you to be able to do this.

Hope this helps,

I use PDF-XChange Viewer. The free download allows text input, though it's a bit limited, no choice of font or font size. On the toolbar, Tools > Comment and Markup Tools > Typewriter Tool gets you there.
