And, I've heard, most of the commentaries and sub-commentaries.

(Technically part of the "Pali Canon"? -- they are in the CST4.0 collection.)

(not sure if they're technically part of the "Pali Canon", but are in collections list the CST4.0.)
Whenever the commentators make a distinction between pāḷiyaṃ (“in the Canon") and aṭṭhakathāyaṃ (“in the Commentary”) the former denotes just the Tipiṭaka.

Niddesa is also untranslated.

P.S. It turned out that Niddesa is translated by Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, but not yet published.
