The communication was great considering we were remote working from different parts of the world, they were helpful in answering questions. I do have to agree with Michelle Z-she was on my team-I would have liked more communication once the project was over but over all the team was pleasant to work with and I would gladly volunteer again.

It was pretty straightforward work, and the work was divided based on how many volunteer proofreaders there were. I wish there was a little more communication once the job was done, but overall the work was painless and simple.
