Transcribe Bentham


A Participatory Initiative


Transcription Update – 28 April to 25 May 2018

By uczwlse, on 31 May 2018

It’s that time again – we’re collating our latest transcription statistics for the past month.  A sincere thank you goes out to all our volunteer transcribers for their efforts.

In case you missed it – we’re still on a high from last week’s announcement.  The central collection of Bentham’s papers have now been completely digitised, woohoo!

Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 25 May 2018.

20,328 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 19,381 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 70 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 18 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!
