I just wanted to let everyone know about a new framework we’ve been working on for Oxygen called HisTEI (i.e. Historical TEI). It’s aimed at making historical documents easier to transcribe using TEI in the Oxygen Author view. The idea is that this view is much easier for typical Humanities researchers to use.

The project is still in its infancy, but the framework is already being used by several projects working with historical linguistic corpora. The framework is completely open source (MIT license) and available on GitHub:


For installation instructions, check out the Wiki on GitHub. You can use the base framework (called HisTEI) to try it out. We are happy to help create a specific framework for your project as well.

We warmly welcome any new participants on the project or any tips that might improve what we have already!
