Just come to think about this and I remembered that Tsadra is translating the complete Dam Ngak Dzö : http://dnz.tsadra.org/index.php/Main_Page
Volume One of the Nyingma section will contain a number of Dzogchen Longde texts. A very interesting project, Volume 14 on Chö is already available.

that is problematic but as far as I know these are the only translations of these two Tantras in English...
In general, you won't find anything very special in the so called "klong sde" tantras since their view and so on is virtually identical with so called "sems sde."

The unique stuff is in the various instructions which take these tantras as their basis.
I dont suppose any of this "unique stuff" has been translated has it?

[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

-- Samadhirāja Sūtra
