It is certainly not the best way to do that but I have already had 
problem with pdf importation in scribus and you can use latex to solve that.

You have to install latex on your computer
Then, you can use render frame (icon next to image frame)
right click on the frame->change sources->font/header
additional header :

And in the code:


Where you can choose the page and the localisation of the document.
I used that only on the the computer of a friend which can't import pdf 
in an other way.

On other way if you use windows is to open the pdf with something like 
adobe illustrator and export each page as a picture.
I hope it will help you ...
