To provide students with some guidelins for transcription

2. Transcription @ InScribe

We have developed a new tool for manuscript transcription practice (and assessment) in collaboration with the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London. Even though this has allowed us to overcome most obstacles, there are still some hurdles to be faced when transcribing. In order to avoid some of these we have provided, in the following pages, guidelines for transcription when using our tool. These relate to abbreviations, punctuation, numerals and special letterforms, and they apply to all the documents and manuscripts used in this module, regardless of their language, date and nature.
