Transcribe Bentham has reached another landmark, as volunteers have now transcribed, to a very high standard, over 3,000 complex and challenging manuscripts since the project went live to the public in September 2010. This is a tremendous achievement, and is an estimated 1.5 million to 2 million words (plus extensive TEI mark-up). We are extremely proud of our volunteer transcribers (see the most prolific contributors here) for all of their efforts in widening access to the collection for all.
We are enormously grateful. Here’s to the next 3000 transcripts!
