Dear List Members
Sincere thanks for all the informative and helpful responses, particularly
from Dr. Birch and Prof. Griffith. I now have the relevant contacts and
information to get started on.

For those on this List wishing to know, there are several Indological
digital edition projects revealed by the responses, such as the work of the
Dharma project, the Susrutasamhita project, the Dravyasamuddesa project,
the Open Philology and the Andhra inscriptions project. Particularly
noteworthy appears to be the work of saktumiva.org and Dr. Li in this

With best wishes,

> Dear List Members,
> A very happy New Year. I hope this finds you well.
> I write to inquire if anyone on this list may know about the production of
> digital editions of Sanskrit texts. There has been some exciting work in
> digital humanities and Biblical Studies, and I am eager to see if the
> latest advances can be used profitably for a research project I am
> developing.
> Apart from designing such a digital edition, I am interested in learning
> about manuscript transcription tools using artificial intelligence such as
> Transkribus, digital collation tools, such as Collate-X, and digital tools
> for stemmatic analysis such as Stemmaweb.
> If you have been involved, or know someone who is involved, in Indological
> research projects creating such editions, and are aware of all these
> issues, I would be extremely grateful for your help and advice (especially
> about costs involved and personnel). Please do contact me at
> bihani.sarkar at orinst.ox.ac.uk
> Thank you.
