I don't know the answer to your question.
I do know that very few of the excellent Yiddish novels available in English translation, in paper, are also available as eBooks. Even most of the works of Nobel prize winner I. B. Singer are paper only!
I have good memories of one novel, written in English by an author who usually wrote in Yiddlish, that is available from Project Gutenberg: The Rise of David Levinsky
