Install poppler-data if on Debian/Ubuntu.

poppler-0.15.3 + bug 27290 fix + pdftohtml -c -zoom + google translate
can do a pretty neat job:


Sure, it's not perfect, but hope it helps a bit anyway. (With the whole
datasheet on single page, Google refuses to translate more than just the
first few pages.)

PS: BTW, if someone is interested, offering such "brm-show me chinese
datasheet" web service would be a pretty neat hack - dealing with them
is pain for a lot of people now I guess. If someone is willing to do
the coding, I can explain exactly how to do the conversion and have
a server to run it on.
