Jump to: navigation, search

If you are here you have either created or found your item and ready to enter a translation.

Look for the inscription according to the procedure described in Getting Started

If the inscription is not in the database, add it by following the procedure described in Add a translation of a new text, if it is already in the database and has a TM or idest id:

  • select add new via perseids
  • select the language from the dropdown menu
  • submit your translation via perseids for vetting

if it does not yet have a TM or idest identifier, please add it and follow the procedure above, otherways:

  • select the inscription
  • click the second last "ADD" button at the bottom of the page

Even if there is already a translation into the same language of the one you wish to insert, you may still add a new one, especially if it is based on a different interpretation of the text.

Simply click the "ADD" button inside the statement box, in the lower gray area, and follow the procedure described in the next steps.

Unless you find a misprint, please do not edit existing translations.

A blue form will appear so that you can insert your data.

  • Begin with the "STATEMENTS" box and start typing the kind of data you want to insert, e.g. Translation Italian.
  • The system will automatically suggest the correct statement (for the list of statements, cfr. infra).
  • Type or paste the translation in the next box.
  • Click the "SAVE" button!
  • Before leaving the page add the source of the translation, as described below!

If you see that there is already a translation and the Trismegistos ID has also been entered and corresponds, submit yours translation via Perseids, please refer to section Enter a text via Perseids.
