Can you live with runoff (roff, groff, troff, etc)?
There's a preprocesor for groff called "preconv" that converts non-ascii
utf-8 characters into \[UXXXX] strings that groff can process. groff has an
option to output to pdf.
There's also an independently re-implemented roff called neatroff that
(according to its documentation) directly handles utf-8 input
I've not tried either of these.
