My contact 'just' wants to translate the document. I already told him that
this is easier said than done. But he is adamant. (Notwithstanding that
several people already gave up on his quest.) I think structure and layout
should be maintained. But I think it will be mostly 'simple' documents with
text and some graphics. So I do not expect to have formula trouble.

Also google for pdfdraw mupdf

I will do that.
