FAQs Crowdsourcing

Mitmachen beim Crowdsourcing

Having logged in to your user account, you can select a digital work which you would like to edit. Then click on “Participate!” followed by “Edit full text”.

Pages on which the automatic text recognition did not find any text, such as empty pages or title pages, offer the options “Insert new word” and “Transcribe”. With “Insert new word”, you can select individual words that were not recognized automatically and enter the correct transcription on the right. By selecting “What would you like to insert” you can determine where to add the new word. Such words will be highlighted in yellow in the viewer display.

You can save your transcription and it will be accessible on the Grimm Portal after a second saving. When you have finished editing a page, you can select the checkbox next to “This page has been completed” and then click on “Finish this page”. If you would like to leave the editing mode, you can click on the small button next to the university logo, which will bring you back to the image view screen.
