Re: BDB module
The Internet Archive also makes their scan sources available for download.

A common way of handling large scanning projects with writing in various scripts is to have non-experts do as much as possible of the Latin proofing and mark non-Latin segments in the process. Then experts can return and fill in the missing bits.

The Germanic Lexicons Project, for example, instructs proofers to just add RUNE for runic text, GREEK for Greek, HEBREW for Hebrew, etc. There would be some need for flexibility with a BDB project since I suspect many non-experts could not identify Syriac vs. Arabic script in the BDB.

Distributed Proofreaders or CCEL would both be potential sites to host and manage such a proofing project.
