Transcribe Bentham


A Participatory Initiative


Transcription Update – 23 June to 20 July 2018

By Louise Seaward, on 26 July 2018

Hello there.  We’re here with our latest transcription update.  As ever, we’re counting up how many pages volunteers have transcribed over the past month. There’s been a flurry of recent activity as new and existing volunteers have been taking part in our Transcription Challenge – why not have a go yourself to help us to complete the transcription of a few boxes of Bentham’s writings?

We need to take this moment to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to Transcribe Bentham.

Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 20 July 2018.

20,523 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 19,577 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 94 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 24 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!
