This website is a collaborative effort of volunteer translators who share an interest in the Enlightenment and a belief in the value of making freely available to English readers articles from the Encyclop die. The articles you will find here reflect the interests and expertise of the translators. Although we cannot hope to translate all 70,000 articles, we will continue to post new translations as they come in. This is an ongoing project to which we hope many more people will contribute. The Collaborative Translation Website allows you to browse articles that have been translated and to search the database of translations in a variety of ways. You will also find links to the original French versions of translated articles. (Updates ongoing)
