I took a new approach to tagging this large edition article: I saved the Word doc as odt, pulled out the content.xml file, and then wrote XSLT to convert the bits I needed to TEI. The results were remarkably good, and I've now completed checking the introduction as well. The bodies of the translation and source text may need their own markup, but in many ways will be much simpler than the academic text. This approach is more effective than I thought it would be, and much less boring than manual tagging.
