Be a Transcriber

Our transcribers are an integral part of the process to make these documents accessible to a broader audience and facilitate further research and discovery.  Transcriptions not only help make the documents easier to read, but also give researchers greater ability to analyse the content of the texts than if they only existed as images.

Who can be a Transcriber?

We welcome all who are interested to become GPP transcribers! It is not necessary to have experience with transcription nor expertise in the Georgian period of history.  This is a crowdsource project that seeks digital volunteers to engage with, through transcription, these collections of Georgian materials.
