I worked for four years on the Cage archives in the Special Collections and Archives dept. at Wesleyan's Olin Library--there's a ton of material there, including the original manuscripts and proofs of the Silence. I'd definitely say it's worth the trip to Connecticut, if you can afford it! http://www.wesleyan.edu/libr/schome/.
For other Silence listers, too, you should know that this is a truly weird and astonishing collection, containing an crazy assortment of fan mail, news clippings, gallery invitations, tributes, and correspondence that Cage donated to Wesleyan upon his death. And, it's now more or less researcher friendly. The online Finding Aid is located here: http://www.wesleyan.edu/libr/schome/FAs/ca1000-72.html
Greetings! The only lead I can provide you is a German translation by
Ernst Jandl, published by Suhrkamp Verlag (Frankfurt) in 1995. It includes
translation of the Lecture on Nothing, Lecture on Something, and 45' for a
Speaker -- not the whole book. I've read aloud parts of the "Vortrag uber
Nichts" and it compares very beautifully with the "Amerikanischen."
The title of the translation is simply "Silence" (in English).
