A. ZU ER CH ER R E I C H A R D T University of Missouri Translation is having a moment in early American studies. Long gone is the era of scholarship deﬁned by monoglot British colonialism clinging to the Eastern Seaboard: early America has become the study of various Euro- pean, Indigenous, and African peoples, societies, and structures, a dynamic ﬁeld concerned with the interactions of diverse—notably linguistically diverse—people across the breadth of the continent and the Atlantic world. Methodological and conceptual shifts toward studies of networks and com- munication, and toward questions of comparison and entanglement, have further pushed our migration beyond the strict conﬁnes of anglophone soci- eties and material texts. Yet, for all its importance in early America, translation is not so simple a keyword to deﬁne. For the purpose of this essay, translation denotes, broadly (1) the process of communicating or attempting to communicate the mean- ing of a source-language text by means of a target-language text, and (2) the material text produced by this process. This essay does not offer an assessment of the ﬁeld of translation studies but, rather, takes stock of how scholars of early America have approached historical instances
