None of those. They're all shit. Read Dalton. It's the only translation that hasn't had the hands of grubby Jews throroughly worked through it, or in the case of Ford, his weird enviromental obsession with Sharks.
Edgar Dugdale seems to have made the earliest translation (albeit an abridged one). One would have to have a look at critical paragraphs in the different translation.
