In addition to web pages, Google Translate also allows you to upload a document including a pdf file for translation. It's an online service and not an offline program, unfortunately.

Go to this page https://translate.google.com/ and click 'translate a document' below the box to upload a document, select a language then press the 'translate' button.

This works if a pdf file is text searchable. It doesn't work if it's a scanned pdf containing images of text, which you will need OCR to extract text separately.

I agree with Joe, Google Translate is "one of the best if not the best" and it is still my choice after trying out several others.
