I believe that your question may have been answered here: How can I use this as my volunteering?
But here are some additional details:
- Our platform does not track volunteer time. If it is important for you to have a record of the amount of time you’ve spent on the site, it is best for you keep track of your own hours. Please make sure in advance that this will meet your requirements.
- If you require documentation of your service, make sure you register an account. Once registered you can access your profile by signing in, clicking “Account” on the top right, and selecting your profile from the drop down list. The profile page allows you to track the actions you take, the pages you work on, and the date and time you submitted your transcription, review or tag. Be sure to log in each time you take part.
- You can also download an official letter documenting your registration as a volunteer and your number of contributions directly from your profile page!
Find out more about transcribing and reviewing before you get started, by visiting our help center. You can see all currently active transcription projects here: https://crowd.loc.gov/campaigns-topics/
With your language skills, you may also want to jump in on some of the non-English materials that volunteers help identify here on History Hub!
- Japanese Pages
- French Documents
- German transcriptions - OCR scanning, tagging and finding German documents
