How to copy/paste Cyrillic characters from PDF?

For years, I've accepted as fact that Russian-language PDFs don't play nice with other programs. That if you tried to paste copied text into Word or Notepad, you'd get gibberish characters. (I work on two laptops, one with Windows Vista and Acrobat, the other Windows 7 and Reader.) Are there any clever workarounds or programs I should know about? [more inside]

Why does this Russian translation not match up?

There's a "Trimet Respects Civil Rights" notice on all the public transit vehicles in Portland. It's one straightforward paragraph translated into 6 languages. Why is it that in the [what I believe to be] Russian translation, the word "Trimet" only appears once, whereas in the 5 other languages it appears twice? [more inside]

script dictionary

I need a script that will extract from a dictionary all words that contain a certain set of letters. e.g: "a", "b", e" should return "abe", "babe", "a" etc. I know this is trivial in perl: however I want the biggest dictionary I can get my hands on, not just the default on linux. So I guess my question has two parts: can you please point me to this script and also point me to the biggest free dictionary in one or all of these scripts: roman, cyrillic, greek. This possibly has been implemented as a website. Which website?
