Tibetan translator of the Samdhinirmocana sutra?

Dear lotsawas!

As title: who was the Tibetan translator of the Samdhinirmocana sutra?
Can't find the answer in any of Power's works, and don't have Lamotte's French at hand.

Thanks in advance.

That information was not preserved in the colophon, so therefore it is not listed anywhere. This is the reason you cannot find it. Lamotte will not help you either.

Thanks Malcolm,

I suspected that may have been the case. I was surprised that Powers didn't state this more clearly though, or at least I couldn't find it (in his dissertation, translation and Hermeneutics and Tradition).
