If Bob Luten's inquirer can be flexible and use the 1750A instead, and is not bothered about which HLL is used, JOVIAL is available for "PC based UNIX and MS-DOS" and VAX hosts according to HTTP://WWW.JOVIAL.hill.af.mil/jov_info.htm and listed on HTTP://WWW.JOVIAL.hill.af.mil/index.html are " SPARC Hosted-MIPS R4000 Targeted JOVIAL Compiler SPARC Hosted-PowerPC Targeted JOVIAL Compiler Windows 95/98/ME/NT (WinX) Compiler". I do not know of the quality or otherwise of these.
