Principles of transcription

  1. Maintain the original entry - carry out the transcription as faithfully as possible to the original, without correcting the writer's mistakes.
     
  2. Lines of text - the transcription should be written in lines (fragments in grey should be omitted). If the word is divided between two lines, it should be written as in the original, that is, without connecting it.
     
  3. Punctuation - all punctuation marks or others (e.g. commas, full stops, hyphens, etc.) appearing in the original should be ignored.
     
  4. Writing capital letters - the mechanism recognises both small and capital letters as correct.
     
  5. Shortening - the general rules accepted by us say that a contraction used by the scribe should be written in full. This document contains contractions which are exceptions to the rule, in other words, those which do not need to be written in full.
     
  6. Letters with diacritic marks - if the text includes letters with diacritic marks which are typical for the Polish language, we retain them.
