   The Holy Quran has been translated in many languages including English. Two major translations in English are by Abdullah Yusuf Ali and Muhammad Pickthal. Texts of these two translations are available on-line at Islam101. We recommend that you study Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation with commentary first. However, there are other noteworthy translations, including the Noble Quran and a translation  from Urdu Tafser of Abul Ala Maududi.

It should however be noted that while you can pick up the main concepts of Islam easily from these translations of the Quran, you may need to refer to the  Tafseer books for a better understanding.

The original revealed text is in Arabic and is the same as it were and as it will be, insha'Allah (God willing).

The following list is taken from Halalco.
