Progress update, 24 to 30 May 2014

By Tim Causer, on 30 May 2014

Welcome along to the progress update for the period 24 to 30 May, during which time Transcribe Bentham volunteers have broken another record. This week has been the busiest ever seven day period, with 214 manuscripts transcribed or partially-transcribed; this just beats the previous record of 212, received during the week commencing 12 April 2014! We have also been able to lock our 8,000th transcript this week. These are two further fantastic achievements on the behalf of transcribers.

We do have to apologise that we haven’t quite been able to check all those transcripts submitted this week, but are working to get through the backlog – apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

8,685 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially transcribed, of which 8,132 (93%) have been checked and approved by TB editorial staff.
