Note: As of Mar. 2020 there are at least three very partial English translations at, including the Public Domain CC-0 Sefaria community version. However that version has only two simanim, whereas here, there are many more simanim completed or started. Two sections of YD there have publisher translations (license not clear per an admin there): Charity: 247-259, Avelut: 335-403

An asterisk (*) after a section indicates it appears complete, at least in draft.     Edit TOC
