    After reading the few projects assembled, i've came to realize it might be useful to edit some passages in these assembled transcripts, in order to make it more approachable to lay readers, and facilitate translations.

    This editing might involve permuting some words, adding/deleting a few ones for easier reading, and sometimes rewriting whole passages for more clarity.

    This editing won't replace the original transcript ( which we will call "RAW") and will be tagged as the "EDITED" version. Once accomplished, it won't need any reviewing by others either. It will just be added in the same pdf, or separately.

    Volunteers can apply here.
    I propose this editing should take place after all 90 interviews have been transcribed.
