Transcribe Bentham


A Participatory Initiative


Transcription update – 21 July to 17 August 2018

By Louise Seaward, on 28 August 2018

It’s time to take stock of the past month and see how our transcribers have been doing.  Transcription continues apace and we are ever grateful to our diligent transcribers for their hard work.  Our average weekly transcription rate is up 10 pages, which is pleasing to see!

Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 17 August 2018.

20,679 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 19,772 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 156 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 39 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!
