Criteria for Transcriptions

This guide is a style sheet for researchers who are preparing transcriptions of documents for insertion into IDEA’s Letters Platform. It explains how to expand abbreviations, how to write personal titles and honorifics, rules for capitalization and other details meant to render consistent the transcription of documents in IDEA. The Criteria may also be useful for readers of transcriptions who wish to understand the relation between the image of the manuscript and the text as transcribed.
