Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary. Please take time to become familiar with the General Keying Standards and be sure to read all instructions on the main project page. (Please note that in case of a discrepancy, project level instructions always trump general keying standards.)
Extra Keying Helps
At present there are a lot of sets coming up where the images do not match the form type. Please cancel these "with problems" and I will pick them up. I wrote a message to Anna. Her answer is to mark them as cover pages and the content manager will address the problem. --Elisabeth power 08:44, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers
- Dittos: these are typically quote marks. These mean to key from the line previously. They are not to be entered as a literal quote (").
- Alignment: Associating streets or dates with the wrong person. Usually from one line below. This can have a dramatic impact on the accuracy score.
- Months: the instructions ask to key the month name, not it's number. The German month names are quite similar to the English names.
- Diacriticals: key all diacriticals (ie. accent marks). Use the dialog with the Ñ character.
- Periods: the directions state that the street names are to be keyed without periods.
- Typos: check your work before submitting.
- Character recognition: view the screen at a magnification you can read, adjust brightness and contrast if necessary.
