Precisely, I would like to find an OCR software which can convert PDF files and images to text.

Also, it should support "Hungarian" language. I tried looking around, searching for such a software, but I couldn't find a list, a comparison, a recommendation... anything.

(No problem if it's not free.)

I will enlighten you one of my favorite things about Wikipedia: comparisons. See: Comparison of optical character recognition software – iglvzx Jan 3 '12 at 18:50
What Wikipedia should and will tell: Specifications, facts. What I need is recommendations, solution for the problem. Not a marketing text, or just a software name. – Shiki Jan 3 '12 at 19:30

I recommend you to try FineReader, it does support Hungarian (full list of languages it supports is here), and it worked perfectly with both Russian and English languages in my experience.
