    Hi morgandollarman,

    If you can extract the Vietnamese text/page (essentially copy it) then you can paste it through the website:
    Vietnamese-English translator.

    I use the tool DownThemAll! which is a Firefox add-on to right-click on a pdf link to download it and save it to my Desktop folder in Ubuntu 9.10. When you click on a pdf link, you are usually given the option to save it - choose that option even if you do not get DownThemAll! installed in Firefox.
