The Tieck translation is available from Google Book Search, in several editions:
Unfortunately, these are scanned images, but you can get Google's uncorrected OCR text by clicking the "View plain text" link on the right side of the page display.
Google Books has scanned at least two copies of the Rothbauer translation, but because it was made in 1964 it is still in copyright, so Google does not have the right to distribute it. You might have to scan that one yourself.
I hope this helps.
