Europeana Transcribathon Campus Berlin 2017
Outstanding results during our two-day event in Berlin!
During these two days, our participants managed to transcribe 407 documents, which amounts to almost 250,000 characters in only 28 hours- what an achievement! In addition, our teams made 614 enrichments to the documents and set 120 geo-tags during this short time.
The event consisted of two main components:
-Transcribathon competition (German/English): On Thursday 22 June, participants were grouped into cross-generational teams and had 28 hours to transcribe as much as they could. The results were presented to an international jury the next day.
-Workshops (English): On Friday 23 June, visitors could take part in transcription and data-enrichment workshops. These included workstations for transcription, annotation, geo-tagging, Linked Open Data and Wikimedia/Wikisource. They offered participants the opportunity of diving deeper into transcription and enrichment, and to discuss with experts.
