Dear Sri Govindarajan:One of the best translations 
of MahA BhAratham is by Sri Chakravarthy Rajagopalachari,
the former Governor General of India.You can have a quick 
look at it using the URL:

http://www.hindubooks.org/books_by_rajaji/mahabharata.index.htm 

This was released by Bharatiya VidhyA Bhavan .
Sri Rajaji has in his inimitable style distilled 
the essence of the 90K slOkams in this work.

Two others are :

(1)van Buiten's 7 Volume Collection with text 
   and translation

(2)Romesh Dutt (1893) from University College , London
translated this epic , when India had a population of 
200 Million. Some one hundred and seven years later
and 1 Billion plus people later, India still looks
to Mahaa BharathA and Bhagavath GithA inside  as well
as another epic (Srimadh RaamAyaNam) for spiritual 
guidance of in its day to day life .

Please read Sri Rajajai's excellent book onthe web.
He had young people in mind , when he wrote this book.
