Such a program does not exist (yet).

I see two parts to your question:
1. convert a pdf to a human and machine readable text format like HTML
2. translate human and machine readable text by an online translation service

The first part already exists but is of questionable quality. Not because
of the converting software itself but because of the very nature of the
pdf file format. Something can be text but it can also be a "drawing" of a
text. Human eyes don't see the difference but for a machine this is very
different.

The second part: I don't know.

Premio,

Perhaps you cannot do it in auto mode but it is can be acomplished
with a slight manual intervention, Ctrl A, Ctrl C, Ctrl V,

That's what I did:

- Looked for a big ,pdf document in my files
- Found a 116 pages Brother printer manual
- opened it with "Document Viewer"
- selected the whole text (Ctrl+A)
- opened Google Translate - translate.google.com/ in my browser
- set language to translate to to Italian
- pasted the original (English) in the left panel (peculiar but the
images were not pasted)
- after some time the right panel showed the result.

Tested with Google Translate because (of course) it was the first
search hit. There are alternatives.

Don't know the limitations but it surely went a long way after page 3.

Of course it doesn't compare with professional translations, but the
output seems (I just looked over) readable, it's a matter of
requirements.

In the example below - aside translating "Brother" as "fratello" the
result (from this message) is not a joke (but then my Italian is
crappy)

-------------
Forse non si può fare in modalità automatica, ma si può essere
acomplished con un intervento manuale leggera, Ctrl + A, Ctrl C, Ctrl
V,

Questo è quello che ho fatto:

- Sembrava un grande documento pdf nei miei file
- Trovato un fratello 116 pagine di manuale della stampante
- Ha aperto con "Document Viewer"
- Seleziona tutto il testo (Ctrl + A)
- Aperto Google Translate - translate.google.com / nel mio browser
- Imposta lingua per tradurre da italiano a
- Incollato l'originale (inglese) nel pannello di sinistra (peculiare,
ma le immagini non sono stati incollati)
- Dopo qualche tempo il pannello di destra ha mostrato il risultato.

Testato con Google Translate perché (ovviamente) era la hit prima
ricerca. Ci sono alternative.

Non so i limiti, ma sicuramente è andato un senso lungo dopo pagina 3.

Naturalmente non si confronta con traduzioni professionali, ma
l'uscita sembra (Ho appena dato un'occhiata) leggibile, è una
questione di requisiti.

----------------

Auguri,

Lucio
