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will introduce the Europeana Transcribathon Citizen Science platform and will demonstrate how to transcribe and enrich historical documents.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!

Our new multilingual run!
Each month, starting 1 July 2021, we will highlight several stories in various languages, selected around a certain theme, ranging from war diaries, family correspondence to love letters and theater play manuscripts. By transcribing the story of your choice, you are automatically taking part in the Stories of the Month Run!
