I began to work on a translation of Schaeffer's landmark treatise at McGill
in the late 80s, but, with other fish to fry at the time, I set it aside and
have never been able to return to it. Certainly no English translation
existed at the time. I would be thrilled (but surprised) to learn that an
English translation is now available.
Of related interest: Michel Chion also published a valuable little book
titled Guide des objets sonores, dedicated to Schaeffer, his mentor.

i vaguely remember having seen a translation of the "TraitÃ des Objets
Musicaux" available in english somewhere, but sorry, i can't find any good
pointer on the internet.
with the help of Leonardo search engine, you will find quite a few
potentially interesting references :
otherwise i would recommend the "SolfÃge" which comes with a 3 CD set of
examples and explanations given by Schaeffer.
still, in French...
