Hi Folks,
I have two medium-sized documents detailing my family
ancestry. Both documents are in PDF format, and both are in Hebrew.
I want to be able to copy the text into a good Hebrew-English
translation tool in order to be able to understand and verify what
has been written. Unfortunately, these PDFs don't allow text to be
"selected" in order to copy/paste but perhaps it could be done with
a suitable OCR or Optical Character Recognition tool that would
render the text "copyable"? Does anyone know? Does anyone have
access to such a tool who could help me with this?
Thank you very much.

If not resolved by now, send it to me and I will transpose it for you
