Progress update, 4 May to 10 May 2013

By Kris Grint, on 10 May 2013

Welcome to the 10 May edition of the Transcribe Bentham progress update, which details the transcription work carried out by our volunteer transcribers over the past 7 days. During this time 2,690 words have been transcribed, along with 1,009 words of TEI markup.

5,565 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 16 on last week’s total. Of these transcripts, 5,280 (94%) are complete and locked. A completion rate of 95% still eludes us – maybe next week!

The more detailed state of progress is as follows

A quick reminder that Box 41, containing material pertaining to Bentham’s massive, unfinished Constitutional Code, is now ready and waiting to be transcribed.

A few of our boxes are teetering on the brink of completion, and we would be very grateful if anyone might consider finishing off boxes 96 or 115! A full list of untranscribed manuscripts is available here.

As always, many thanks to everyone who has contributed to Transcribe Bentham over the last seven days. Your work is invaluable to us at the Bentham Project and very much appreciated.
