Solutions of scalar viscous conservation laws whose initial data are bounded and tend at x = ±∞ to values that may be connected by a shock profile are shown to converge in L to a time-dependent translation of that profile. Unlike the standard theory, the initial data is not restricted to be an L1 perturbation of the shock profile, and the translation may not be linear in time. Estimates for the translation are obtained.
