Is there an English translation of Ibn al-Jawzi's Minhaj al-Qaṣidin?
I know of ibn Qudamah's mukhtasar of the book but I'm looking for a translation of the original.

There is no English translation of Minhaj al-Qasidin wa Mufid al-Sadiqin (Arabic: منهاج القاصدين ومفيد الصادقين) as the Arabic version is not available in the first place. This book was lost long time ago, but I have heard that, for the first time, a Syrian publisher has distributed the book in Arabic, based on an old version found in Turkey. I have not seen this version. The manuscript in Arabic can be found here.

In the introduction of Ibn Qudamah's book of Mukhtasar Minhaj al-Qasidin, he mentioned that the book was an abridged version of Minhaj al-Qasidin by Ibn al-Qayyim, which is in itself an abridged version of Ihya' 'Ulum al-Deen by al-Ghazali.
