Make life easy for volunteers

Volunteers contribute their time and expertise to crowdsourcing projects, and they deserve a good experience in return. Transkribus makes transcription easy and enjoyable, thanks to the side-by-side view and the visual linking of lines in the image and the corresponding lines in the text editor.

Train custom AI models with the help of volunteers

The high-quality transcriptions produced by volunteers can be used to create custom AI models, which are trained to recognise the specific handwriting in your documents.

Engage volunteers to correct AI-generated transcriptions

Manual transcription is often a tedious and time-consuming job. To speed up the process, transcribe your documents automatically with Transkribus and ask your volunteers to correct the AI-generated transcriptions.

Enrich your documents with tags

Transcription is important, but it is not the end of the line. Depending on your goals, you can engage volunteers in enriching your data, thanks to Transkribus’ simple and intuitive features for tagging elements of your documents, such as names, places, events, interesting passages, etc.
