I've seen a translation of a collection of biographies of eminent nuns in English, alas I can't remember the book's title. Otherwise I don't think any biographical record has been fully translated, except for the travel stories.
It has an English wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memoirs_of_Eminent_Monks
And those collections are also used to compare it with Chan records, like here: Biographies of Eminent Monks in a Comparative Perspective
and here: Evolution of Chan Biographies of Eminent Monks
In Chinese DDM/DDBC has a great project
to search for biographical info: Buddhist Authority Database Project
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?
2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.
3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.
4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.
