Enabling and Reusing Multilingual Citizen Contributions in the Archival Record

Enabling multilingual citizen contributions to an existing open-source platform for transcribing and translating historical documents and adding these contributions to the archival record.

This project seeks $302,477 in support to enhance FromThePage (FtP), an open-source platform for the collaborative transcription, translation, and indexing of texts, with the intent to enable multilingual citizen contributions to DH activities (Part 1) and reuse these citizen contributions in the archival record (Part 2). The expected outcomes include platform restructuring to enable multilingual versions of FtP, a Spanish and Portuguese translation of the interface and user guides, enhanced support for object metadata and faceted browsing, additional export options to facilitate the use of machine-readable textual outputs in other digital scholarship tools, and workflows to incorporate citizen contributions into the archival and digital asset management system record.
