Transcription Update – 14 October to 10 November 2017

By uczwlse, on 14 November 2017

Hello and welcome to the latest statistics update from Transcribe Bentham.

We’re happy to report that our volunteers have been contributing transcripts steadily across the past four weeks.  We need to take this moment to say a huge thank you to everyone who has spent some time working on the site!   We are also planning some forthcoming improvements for our Transcription Desk, which will hopefully make it more user-friendly.  These developments are based on the results of our recent user survey and the ideas generated at the Bentham Hackathon we hosted in assocation with IBM.  More information coming soon!

Back to the statistics – these are the latest statistics as of 10 November 2017.

19,249 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 18,478 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 113 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 28 pages have been transcribed each week during the past month.

Check out the Benthamometer for more information on how much has been transcribed from each box of Bentham’s papers!
