    How to deal with split words with hyphens

    Sharon McKinley Scout

      Hey, folks, just a request to occasionally review the transcription directions! I know that I have forgotten things here and there, and I try to look to remind myself of what I'm supposed to be doing.


      The purpose of transcription is to make these documents searchable. If you put a hyphen in and split a word between 2 lines (i.e copying what you see), you are making a mistake. The directions say to make a hyphenated word into one word, on the 1st line, and start the next line with the first whole word there. (See Line breaks in the transcribing document). Please don't go back to fix "mistakes" in this regard. Thanks!
