Yes full english translation of the Kalachakra Tantra in english.
Does such a thing exist? The Second and Fourth chapters have been translated by Vesna Wallace, and are available (separately) from Columbia. A draft translation of the Third chapter appears in Jensine Andresen's dissertation "Kalacakra: Textual and Ritual Perspectives", and parts of the First chapter appears in John R. Newman's dissertation "The Outer Wheel of Time: Varjayana Buddhist Cosmology in the Kalacakra Tantra".
I don't know of any translations of the Fifth chapter, or of the remainder of the first chapter untranslated by Newman.
Of course, the Vimalaprabha is available as "Ornament of Stainless Light" from Wisdom Pubs.
None of the above are terribly difficult to find-- both dissertations are on ProQuest, and the books are in print.
