Transkribus is an AI-powered platform for text recognition, transcription and searching of historical documents – from any place, any time, and in any language.
Transkribus is an AI platform that supports your work with historical documents. Transkribus enables you to automatically recognise text, layout, and structure in your documents with the power of AI. For this, you can train your own AI models that fit your specific documents. Transkribus also lets you enrich your material with metadata, you can collaborate with others, and searching your material is made easy too.
Train specific text recognition models that are capable of recognising millions of handwritten, typewritten or printed documents.
Leverage AI-powered handwritten text recognition, layout analysis and structure recognition.
Use the transcription editor to manually transcribe historical documents or work with the AI-powered recognition by using public AI models or ones that you can train on your own.
Search your documents with advanced search options such as the keyword spotting tool.
.Work together on your documents, organize them in collections and benefit from each other’s work
Share your work with anyone with a read&search website or export your documents as PDF or ALTO (XML).
All Transkribus content, i.e. your uploaded images, recognised text, trained recognition models, and entered metadata are hosted within the EU and we abide by the GDPR.
Use Transkribus to transcribe historical documents. Transcriptions can be done in a highly standardized, flexible and reliable way.
With cutting edge handwritten text recognition technology, large collections of archival material can easily be made accessible.
Decipher and search old handwriting (e.g. Kurrent or Sütterlin) from historical letters, manuscripts or old documents.
Leverage AI for layout analysis and document understanding and work with large amounts of documents (historical but also printed ones).
The support of future scholars is one of our core values. Therefore, we offer the Transkribus studentship programme.
Transkribus is great for your pipeline if your are a scientist from computer vision, document analysis, pattern recognition, natural language processing or a related field.
Transkribus was developed by the University of Innsbruck in cooperation with leading research groups from all over Europe as part of the Horizon 2020 EU research project READ. Due to the high level of international acclaim, the work on the Transkribus ecosystem is now being continued within the framework of a European Cooperative Society (SCE).
