Tagging Tools

Release 1.11.0

In a previous post we already wrote about our experiences with structure tagging and described the tools that go with it. But for most users (e.g. in edition projects) enriching texts with additional content information is even more important. To add tags to a transcription you can use the tagging tools in the tab “Metadata”/”Textual” in Transkribus.

Here you can see the available tags as well as those that have already been applied to the text of the page. With the Customize button you can create your own tags or add shortcuts to existing tags, just like with structure tagging. The shortcuts allow for easier and faster tagging in the transcript. If you want to do without shortcuts, you have to mark the respective words in the text (not in the image) and select the desired tag with a right click. Of course a word can be tagged several times.

These tags should not be confused with the so-called TextStyles (for example, crossed out or superscript words). They are not accessible below the tags but via the toolbar at the bottom of the text window.
