Abstract

We calculate the transformation laws of the general linear superfield and chiral superfields under supertranslations to all orders in the translation parameters . We use the superfield formalism with complete expansions of the component fields in the coordinate shifts . The results show in particular how a general supertranslation transforms each component field of a supermultiplet into a complete superfield. The results also provide complete parametri-zations of orbits of component fields under supertranslations.
