Entry Files

Procedures for converting single pages into Encyclopedia entries.

Attention: This section is no longer maintained and is posted for information only.

ABBYY FineReader generates separate files for each page of the Encyclopedia. After we convert them to TEI (saved in the 3-tei folder) they are still files of individual pages. For the project, we need files for entire entries, not pages.

To solve this problem, we run a Python script that concatenates the individual page files into a single file. It then segments the file by entry and creates a new file for each, saved in the digital-edition/xml folder.

These new entry files need to be carefully checked and validated. To do this, we use Oxygen XML Editor.
