New Testament checking party

Part of my job (Laura) is checking each New Testament for errors just before it is sent to the printer.  A translation team labors for years to translate the scriptures into the language of the people group they are working with.  Finally their work is ready to be typeset and formatted so that it can be sent off to the printer.  My co-worker does the typesetting and then it is time for me to assemble a team of volunteers to come in for a morning and check each page.  We look out for errors in page sequencing, table of contents, topical index, spacing, copyrights, etc.  It’s exciting to be a part of the final stages of getting the scriptures into waiting hands.
