English translations of Voltaire offer a particularly rich example of inter-cultural migration during the eighteenth century. A prestigious and controversial author writing within a linguistically dominant culture, his works were eagerly seized upon and widely translated, alongside the texts themselves. The way in which his translators reworked and adapted his works and the reception of these translations demonstrate the varied response Voltaire experienced in the English-speaking world.
