Default any way to convert scanned pdf to excel/csv file

I was wondering if there is any program out there that can convert a scanned image of text into an editable CSV, Excel, or any program that can edit words into a list. I'm trying to scan my German vocabulary textbook onto my computer because I use an online flashcard program that makes learning vocab easier. I tried typing the words individually in but it became to annoying to do every single word (There's around 10,000 distinct words in the book). The program allows to add bulk entries of words if they're separated and I've tried using www.onlineocr.net but the words came out all out of order because it has the German word and English definition parallel to it so I guess it could pair them properly or something. Can anyone help?
