Considered the classical biography of Marx,[2] the work has been translated into many languages, including Russian (1920), Danish (1922), Hungarian (1925), Japanese (1930), Spanish (1932), and English (1935).[3]

Above list of languages suggestive of Comintern approval? Have not read much but seems doubtful as somewhat gossipy and pro-Lassalle. Check for French and others and verify. Anyway should be easy to find some other list of likely Comintern translation languages and compare with list of languages for Borchardt? Wordcat has 6 editions including Dutch but not all the above:

Includes chapter 12, “Das Kapital”, section 3 “The Second and Third Volumes of Capital” referenced by Julian Borchardt “The People’s Marx” last chapter on crises. Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg Volume 2 confirms:

Rosa Luxemburg composed this text at the request of Franz Mehring for his biography of Marx: Franz Mehring, Karl Marx: Geschichte seines Lebens (Leipzig: Leipziger Buchdrückerei, 1918); Franz Mehring, Karl Marx: The Story of His Life, translated by Edward Fitzgerald (London: Routledge, 2011).
