I’ve been pushing ahead with plans to equip one of my wikis for a group transcription/translation of Proudhon’s collected works. The tools developed at Wikisource are in many ways pretty slick, and it looks like they will be adaptable to all the needs of the project. My only problem is that they use the djvu format, and I am living in an all-Macintosh house at the moment. If there’s anyone out there who has the capability to do some pdf-to-djvu conversion for me, I can do the rest of the work to get the OCR work done and the raw results into the wiki for proofreading.
If we can tackle the first phases of this project, we can probably also find some better ways to tackle the transcription of Liberty, which I would like to resume seriously again in the near future.
If you can help out, let me know. We’re probably talking about two dozen pdfs to deal with, for starters.
