Any advice on indexing a pdf and making an index in Word?

Hi! I am faced with the task of indexing a book that will be in pdf format. I understand that there are programs that will help with tagging the terms to be included in the index and then generating an index in Word that I can send along to the publisher.
I do not have the Pro version of Adobe, so I will likely have to download a program, and I see that there are several "index generators" available.
I see that a similar question was asked in 2009, but my guess is that a lot has changed since then. Does anyone have experience with such programs and can advise on which one is the easiest to use? I already have a list of the terms to be indexed. At least that part is done!
Thank you ever so much in advance!
