Thank you

The Australian War Memorial would like to extend our gratitude to each of you for volunteering your time and registering to be part of our Transcribe project – transcribing items from the National Collection.

Since public launch on Wednesday 14th February, the response has been truly overwhelming. In just over 48 hours, more than 1 million words have been transcribed by more than 20,000 volunteer transcribers. This accomplishment stands as a testament to your contributions and the strength of community and collaboration.

As we move forward, further collections (quests) will be added in the coming weeks by the Transcribe team. 

We sincerely appreciate your patience as we work to make more collection records available online for transcription.

Transcribe is an ongoing project as there are thousands of diaries and letters that the Memorial is continuing to digitise before being made available for transcription. 

Once again, thank you for your help to preserve Australia's history and enhancing accessibility and discoverability for all Australians.
