In preparation for Transcribathon run in Zagreb, taking place from November 7th to 11th, our platform has been enriched with hundreds of documents from the State Archives in Zagreb. Competitors will have a chance to transcribe documents from the 19th and early 20th centuries and explore the collections of Ivan Ulčnik and Dragutin Hirc.
Mini Run Competition
The workshop will introduce the Europeana Transcribathon Citizen Science platform and will demonstrate how to transcribe and enrich historical documents. Participants can then go hands-on into a Mini Run competition and start transcribing handwritten documents in the language of their choice. We will be there to help with challenges in using the transcription tool. Everybody can take part in the mini run!
