Transcription Update – 2 to 29 March 2019
By Louise Seaward, on 9 April 2019
Welcome everyone to the latest statistics update for the month of March. The transcription rate is slightly lower than usual this month as we experienced a few days of downtime on the Transcription Desk. Thanks to all our volunteers for sticking with us!
Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 29 March 2019.
21,710 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 20,999 (96%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.
Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 101 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 25 pages have been transcribed each week during the past month.
