+ New Transkribus transcription conventions now available

We know that handwritten historical documents are often complex in their structure and content.

Transkribus users usually need to transcribe at least 75 pages of handwritten material in our platform in order to create training data for Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR).  We have produced a new How to Guide covering our transcription conventions to make this process easier.

It answers some of the common queries around the transcription of elements like punctuation, abbreviations diacritics, strikethrough text, names and much more.

You can find further guidance on working with Transkribus in the other How to Guides on the Transkribus wiki.  And if you can’t find an answer to your query, we are always happy to hear from you by email (email@transkribus.eu)
