+ A new Transkribus User Report

Chiara Petrolini, a post-doctoral fellow at the German Historical Institute in Rome (DHI) recently spent a few days with the Transkribus team at the University of Innsbruck.

She has kindly written a User Report about her experience of working with Transkribus so far.

Dr Petrolini is an early modern scholar, working on a project about the court librarian Sebastian Tengnagel and the Imperial Library in Vienna.  She has begun transcribing Tengnagel’s seventeenth-century correspondence, with a view to training the Handwritten Text Recognition engine to recognise this handwriting.  She is also finding Transkribus a useful transcription tool for documents written in more than one language, as scholars with different skills can work on the same document from different locations.

This new project will help us to spread the word about Transkribus in Italy – we will be coming there for a workshop soon!
