Well, not a complete list obviously. Any of the theosophical 
bookstores or libraries can be a bit more specific when one knows the 
language(s) one is interested in. But the Secret Doctrine and the Key 
to Theosophy have been translated in very many languages.

There is such a simplified version of the stanza's of dzyan, with 
parts of the proem and the introduction to volume II of the Secret 
Doctrine. The essence isn't lost, IMO: 
"Two books of the Stanzas of Dzyan", H.P. Blavatsky, Theosophical 
Publishing House, Adyar, Madras, 600 020, India. Should be available 
from any Adyar-theosophical bookstore. (or for ordering). 

Then there is, I think, a version of The Voice of the Silence, which 
has been updated, in language. Available from Quest-publishing (which 
also caries the original).
