caption/ rubber stamp/ handwritten/ circumflex accent

Hello all,

Sorry, I have some questions. 

1) I found only french caption in the photo but ever I insert both caption in french and english (my translation). Is it correct?

2) If I find a rubber stamp of an agency on the back of the photo Could I write in the caption: (rubber stamp) on parenthesis ? Or not?

3) If I find an handwritten, may I write in the caption: (handwritte) on parenthesis ? or not?

4) I didn't find circumflex accent for u 


Thank you and have a nice day,

    Hi Chiara,


    if you have only one caption (french or english), you just have this one to transcribe. We don't ask the participant to translate except for the description (step 5) if wanted. You just have to transcribe the caption, not the stamp. Don't take into account whether it is handwritten or not. Sorry for the circumflex accent for U, we don't have it in our special characters for now, Thanks a lot for your participation and your commitment.
