Progressing the workEdit

    • {{No header}} - where the header information missing
    • {{Translation}} for rating the progress of a Wikisource translation
  • Sourcing
    • {{No source}} the source is unknown and should be identified
    • {{Fidelity}} - used where the text integrity is dubious
    • {{Second-hand}} or {{Project Gutenberg}} when the work comes from a second-hand source (and should preferably be scan-backed instead)
  • When there are errors:
    • {{Clean up djvu}} when the work has OCR errors or hasn't been proofread, and does have a page scan
    • {{OCR-errors}} when the work contains OCR errors and/or page breaks and does not have a page scan.
    • {{Transcluded OCR errors}} when the work contains OCR errors from a transcluded page scan.
  • Issues with the structure of a work
    • {{Split}} when the work needs to be split up into sections or chapters.

    • {{Refs}} when the work has references in the text which should be converted to the Wiki ref format
    • {{Standardise}} when the work is complete, but doesn't conform with the style guidelines
  • When work should be scan-backed:
    • {{Migrate to}} when the work is ostensibly complete, but needs to be migrated to an existing page scan of the same edition. If the scans aren't at Wikisource yet, or the edition is different, use {{scans available}}.
    • {{Scans available}} - when scans are available, but do not have an index page yet. Use {{migrate to}} if the scans exist at Wikisource, and the edition is the same
