I am looking for a spellchecker for PDF documents.

Preferably it would process the PDF and mark any errors in the document.

Preferably it would use hunspell dictionaries

What operating system are you using? Why don't you want to spell check the source document instead? – frabjous Oct 28 '10 at 15:16
Windows, Linux. Preferably linux. Source is Docbook see I have gotten limited support for spellchecking in dockbook working through XML Mind and I have also tried Aspell but those dictionaries are pretty weak - so this is a longshot :) – oluies Oct 28 '10 at 15:30

There are many programs that allow you to activate mouse "right-click" (or any other selected button), on-spot translation (from all languages to all languages)

The most popular two are: 1. Babylon 2. White Smoke

Best of luck!
