Europeana Transcribe

Transcribathon Europeana 1914-1918

Crowdsourcing initiative for the transcription of digital material from the First World War compiled online by Europeana 1914-1918. The idea behind the tool is to utilise the sources in a better way by deciphering and transcribing the texts and linking them to an image. In this way, they can be effectively used for education, research and publications. Europeana Transcribe takes the stories of Europeana 1914-1918 one step further. It is a crowdsourcing initiative that allows you to add your own transcriptions, annotations and geo-tags to sources from Europeana 1914-1918.
