English annotation by Vishnudut1926: "Shree Vachana-Bhushanam" by OM VishnuPad Shree Pillai LokAcharya is the main Grantha of Tenkalai (The Southern Branch of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya). 

I was very much amazed noticing that the translation had been made not by a representative of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya, but by a western indologist (Dr. Robert C. Lester from Colorado).

Usually I shun and avoid the translations of western indologists, because Sampradayik translations must be made by native Hindu representatives of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya. 
In spite of western origin this translation is perfect and it was made with the assistance of Sri Agnihotram Ramanuja Tatacharya and prof. A. Tiruvengadathan (Dr. Robert C. Lester communicated with both of them in Madras as the foreword to the translation says).
I recommend to study this translation with the classic English translation by Sri SatyaMurthi Swami of Gwalior, the scan be found here - http://vishnudut1926.blogspot.ru/2016/02/srivachana-bhusahanam-by-sri-pillai.html

Some perfect Hindi editions of "Shree Vachana-Bhushanam" exist too, I will add them to my E-Library later.
