The only real translation of that in English is Conze's in the book The Perfection of Wisdom in Eight Thousand Lines & Its Verse Summary.
Conze's translation is more complete than his translation of the sūtra, which is sometimes criticised for summarising or skipping too much.
A bit more academic, but nonetheless relevant, is Conze's The Prajñāpāramitā Literature. His introduction contains some information about the text.

But you may find this parallel version interesting:

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.
