The OP needs to confirm that the original pdf is actually text and not
an image of text?

The other way is to use okular or similar and then you can select the
text and copy it to the clipboard - and then paste it into the
translation box.

However if the pdf is a scanned image then it would need ocr before
the text could be extracted -
