Transcribers are always Free!

FromThePage connects volunteers transcribers to institutions with material needing transcription. Institutions pay to host projects on FromThePage, but transcribers -- who are giving their time freely -- are always free.

What's a page?

Every image you upload for transcription is a page.

What's a project?

Projects are distinct in that they are usually the same archival or research collection with the same transcription conventions and other settings (public/private for example). "Distinct projects" have different transcription conventions and configurations. For instance, you couldn't do a ledger book and a set of letters in the same project because the configuration is very different for structured data and more textual documents.

Sometimes we'll use the words "project" and "collection" interchangeably.

What happens when we're done transcribing?

Page counts are for active projects; once a project is completed you can mark it as inactive and it won't count against your page totals. Inactive projects are "read only" -- you can view and export the transcriptions, but you can't change them.

So which one should I choose?

The small organization plan is the most popular; most universities fall under it. State archives usually fit into the large organization plan. An estimate of the number of pages you'll be working on and how diverse your collections are is the best way to tell.
