Transcription Update – 11 November to 8 December 2017

By Louise Seaward, on 8 December 2017

Hello! Welcome to the latest statistics update from Transcribe Bentham.

The past four weeks have been very busy at the Transcription Desk.  We’ve had many new transcribers joining us and our regular volunteers have been working as hard as ever.  All this means that our transcription rate has nearly doubled over the past month!  A huge thank you to everyone who has undertaken some transcription for us. We are very grateful that you can fit us in during the hectic Christmas period.

Here are the full statistics – as of 8 December 2017.

19,472 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 18,605 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 223 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 56 pages have been transcribed each week during the past month.
