If we end up going with Sophist, it is very unlikely that everyone will be using the same translation, since there are dozens of translations available. The best we can hope for is that everyone use a translation that sticks with the Stephanus pagination, so that when a passage is quoted, we know where the passage is coming from; page numbers do obviously do not line up across the many translations.
