To mention a Latin and German translation:

Edition of the Sanskrit text with Latin translation by Christian Lassen: _Gita Govinda, Jayadevae poetae Indici drama lyricum_, Bonnae 1836,  see e.g. Google Books (URL: <>)

first hand German translation by Friedrich Rückert: Gita-Gowinda aus dem Sanskrit übersetzt von Friedrich Rückert, in: _Zeitschrift für die Kunde des Morgenlandes_ 1.1837, pp. 129-173, see e.g. Google Books (URL: <>). In the 20th c. this has been re-published  e.g. under the title: _Gita Gowinda oder Die Liebe des Krischna und der Radha_ (Berlin 1920, bibliophile edition with lithographs) and as part of _Indische Liebeslyrik_ ed. by Helmuth von Glasenapp (Munich 1921) and so on.
