Transcription Update – 31 March to 27 April 2018
By Louise Seaward, on 1 May 2018
Gather round for our monthly transcription statistics. Last month we reached a high point of 20,000 pages of Bentham material transcribed by volunteers but thankfully our diligent transcribers show no signs of slowing down! We are hugely grateful to everyone who has transcribed something for us recently.
Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 27 April 2018.
20,258 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 19,306 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.
Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 138 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 35 pages have been transcribed each week during the past month.
