Progress update, 21 December 2013 to 10 January 2014

By Tim Causer, on 10 January 2014

Firstly, happy new year from all of us Transcribe Bentham, and we hope that all volunteers and readers had an enjoyable festive period. Since our last update, excellent progress has been made: 18,249 words have been transcribed during the past two weeks, along with a further 8,026 words of TEI XML.

6,760 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 114 upon the total on 20 December. Of these transcripts, 6,463 (95%) are complete after going through our quality control process, which is up 103 on two weeks ago. We anticipate that the 7,000th transcript will be worked on at some point during March, which would be a fantastic achievement on behalf of TB volunteers.

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:

Thank you, as always, to everyone who contributed to Transcribe Bentham during the last couple of weeks. It remains greatly appreciated by us all, particularly as we know how busy the festive period can be.
