There's also a French translation. It is bundled with a translation 
of Nagel and Newman's _Goedel's Proof_ and published in 1989 with an 
essay by J. Y. Girard. The bundling is ironic in view of what 
happened to a similar proposal before Nagel and Newman was published. 
(See Goedel, Collected Works, vols. IV and V, correspondences with 
Allan Angoff, Wilson Follett, and Ernest Nagel.)

There is now a complete Italian translation of all of vols. I and II 
of the Collected Works. Although I haven't checked this, it seems 
probable that the translation of 1931 is new.
