I created a document with Illustrator for a client and I have two text fields (in red on the attached photo) that need to be editable by the client. He only has the free version of Acrobat so I don't think he can edit them with Acrobat's editing feature. My idea was to create interactive fields, but I can't do it in Illustrator. Would you have a solution to make these 2 fields editable by the client while keeping the same typography?

I had done this kind a job for a while ago with illustrator but I had to finish my work in indesign.If you have Indesign as well then export your file as PDF to Indesign and create these two two text boxes in Indesign by using interactive editable text and then export it from Indesign as Interactive PDF file. It will work with Acrobat Reader.
