We investigate four well-known negative translations of classical logic into intuitionistic logic within a substructural setting. We find that in affine logic the translation schemes due to Kolmogorov and G\"odel both satisfy Troelstra's criteria for a negative translation. On the other hand, the schemes of Glivenko and Gentzen both fail for affine logic, but for different reasons: one can extend affine logic to make Glivenko work and Gentzen fail and vice versa. By contrast, in the setting of
