Transcribe Bentham


A Participatory Initiative


Transcription Update – 8 December 2018 to 4 January 2019

By uczwlse, on 4 January 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR! The first statistics update of 2019 is looking good.  Volunteers have been participating in our Transcription Challenge. They’re working together to transcribe a list of targeted pages and the productivity is impressive. Thank you to every who has transcribed something lately.

Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 4 January 2019.

21,307 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 20,483 (96%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 102 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 26 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!
