If you have created your own logo, and you open its vector files (SVG and PDF), you might not see it as you expected. The texts of your logo on its vector file could look different as they do on their raster versions (i.e., its PNG and JPEG files). The reason - the text in a vector file is kept as letters, not as an image. These letters are styled by certain font - the one that is chosen in the logo maker. And your computer can't display fonts that are not already installed on it. It can display only its default and present ones. So, in order to open and edit a vector logo file, you have to add its font/s to your device.

Close and reopen your vector logo file to see if the font is working properly. Your new font should now be recognizable by any text editing program on you computer.
Remember that anyone who opens your vector logo file, without having the used fonts, must first install them on their side. For example, if you send your vector logo to a graphic designer or a print shop, you will need to provide the font files or at least font name.
When using a vector graphic designer software, you will be able to convert the text into curves / outlines. See how bellow:
