SOL (Suda On Line) is a collaborative interact-based project involving dozens of researchers to transform the Suda, a Byzantine Greek historical encyclopedia, into a searchable English electronic text. The text includes SGML tags to delimit content such as personal names, places, and treatises and also contains bibliographic and other references, many being hypertext links to other projects elsewhere. SOL allows us to identify translators, establish editorial control, allocate encyclopedia entries to translators, accept translations, have translators to modify their accepted translations, have editors vet translations, present texts with Greek and English components, present overall translation status, and perform searches.
