(tei:div type="translation")


This section describes the division in which the translation of the inscription is encoded.

A minimal translation contains plain text rendering the inscription into the desired language.

A project may also choose to tag the text features within the translation, in which case the detailed guidelines concerning the markup of traditionally transcribed issues are found under the heading of Tagging the Inscribed Text.


An edition is tagged using the <div @type='translation'> element. There can be multiple translations of the same text, for example into different languages or by different translators; each translation should be enclosed in its own separate <div @type='translation'>.

Authority for each translation is recorded in.
