Template:Transcluded OCR errors

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This maintenance template is to mark mainspace pages which have had unproofread text transcluded from the Page: namespace. This is typically done in the short term to aid organisation of complex or large works consisting of many separate parts while they are being worked on. The legitimate long-term uses of this template are few, and it should be used exceedingly sparingly. Any main namespace page transcluding this template for any length time can expect to receive periodic scrutiny, be proposed for deletion, and other maintenance processes. In short: this template is not a substitute for actually proofreading the pages in question!

{{Transcluded OCR errors}}


  • page: The page (or the first page) that contains OCR errors that are transcluded.
{{Transcluded OCR errors|page=Page:Sandbox/1}}


This templates categorises pages to Category:Mainspace pages with transcluded OCR errors.

Progressing the workEdit

The ideal solution to works in this state is to proofread the underlying Page: pages of the work.

See alsoEdit

  • Completeness
    • {{Incomplete}} marks a work as incomplete. It generally means that some parts of the work are not available on Wikisource in any form, either as text content or page scans. If possible, use a more specific template like those below.
    • {{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.
    • {{Split-multiple}} when a page such as a collection of snippets needs to be split into various different works.
    • {{Move to subpage}} when a work should be a subpage of another work
    • {{Numbers}} when the work contains page breaks from the original work, but not other OCR errors.
    • {{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
