« Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future
generations », according to UNESCO, and it is one of the primary concerns of the DIGISCRIB Society.
Motivated by this mission, it guarantees its clients that their documents will be treated with care
To carry out the missions that are confided to the Society, we turn to specialists in literature,
history and art history, but also to conservators of national heritage ("patrimoine"). Always attentive
to the historic dimension of the text and its preservation, the team combines university knowledge with
an ever-increasing familiarity of the most up-to-date technologies.
Thus, through an outlook that is always mindful of the future, the employees and interns of the DIGISCRIB
Society ensure the lasting quality of the documents and books that are entrusted to them.
If the passion for books and the great respect for all kinds of documents are essential to our work, the
appropriate computer skills and equipment are just as necessary to carry out the tasks, in order to properly
scan the documents concerned and transform them into searchable text using OCR (Optical Character Recognition
The engineers who scan and perform OCR on texts are taught to use the highest-performing digitizing machines
on the market, equipped with the most advanced scanning programs available. Qualified personnel ensure
accurate OCR by verifying the accuracy of the digitized image, by backing up the information and by correcting
the text file.
This attentive surveillance of the mechanized computer processes guarantees that the level of accuracy of
character recognition is around 90%.
The DIGISCRIB Society seeks to provide public and private institutions, businesses, and individuals
with digital processing of technical and professional documents. As a result, the engineers' specialties are
not restricted to antique or precious documents, as digitization is increasingly necessary for most public
institutions (financial institutions, tax offices, etc.), but it is also gaining popularity in the private
sector (digitizing bills, brochures, catalogues, technical publications) where it is as yet a less common
In light of increasing demand, the flexibility and responsiveness of the DIGISCRIB Society are made possible
thanks to the professional diversity of its various partners, and they are adapted to the competencies of
each person. Adapting to the evolutions of demand and those of the digital era is integral to the DIGISCRIB
