+ Transkribus-support for DIGITENS

Transkribus now helps to produce a digital encyclopaedia, containing articles regarding sociability during the Age of British enlightenment. This should be achieved within the H2020 DIGITENS-project coordinated by the University of Western Brittany (UBO) in Brest, France, which gives young scholars the chance to get familiar with new digital humanities research tools and with the work in archives. At the same time the project opens them up to the opportunity to spend time abroad and therefore supports mobility.

For the DIGITENS-project, it is important to have a standardized workflow in order to work efficiently. This is where Transkribus comes into play. Our software makes it possible to cover the whole workflow from scanning with the ScanTent and the DocScan app up to international cooperation in using Handwritten Text Recognition models. This way Transkribus can give the project the required infrastructure.

To give the scholars an insight into the work with Transkribus, we have organised a workshop in Brest at the UBO on 22nd of May.

The project is coordinated by the GIS Sociability and the research lab HCTI. The DIGITENS encyclopedia will soon be available online at the following address: https://www.digitens.org/en
