Thanks. I found that one too after I posted it. But there is a slightly difference than what I have (Tibetan/Chinese), for example, the one at lotsawahouse only has the visualization, but not the prayer after getting up from bed in the morning, that's why I asked for the "complete" English sadhana, I would appreciate if somebody could help. But with the one at lotsawahouse, it's enough to get me started.

Yes, I did. I received the reading transmission in 2007 from Sangye Tsering Rinpoche, the reincarnation of Ngawang Palzang.

can you get a copy from your teacher?
You can also order a copy from Dzogsar Khyentse Rinpoches website I believe.

Thanks. I did get the practice manual from Khyentse foundation, which is very wonderful. But it's not a sandha, it's a commentary.
I already have the Tibetan/Chinese Sadhana which is where I received transmission. I also would like to have the English one, what's why I posted here.

there is an english translation available through Dodrupchen Rinpoche's center in Massachusetts.
mahasiddha.org just go to the store and you should be able to find it.
It is abridged but I am not sure to what extent. It was edited and abridged by Dodrupchen himself so I am sure its excellent.

Since I posted this I have looked at a copy of this sadhana.
The only major abridgment is to the mandala offering section. Other than that it looks almost identical to other LN ngondro sadhana's I have seen.
It is well edited, designed, and includes some excellent images and opening prayers to Shakyamuni Buddha.
