You can always get to the Projects page from the Projects link at the top of the page.
The Projects page lists, in reverse chronological order, all the projects you've got permission to see.
You can search for a particular project using the Search box, and you can also search by Newest / Oldest or Due date.
You can view all of the projects by grid view, or list view.
You can see, at a glance, how much of a project has been transcribed or translated, and how far through the approval process each one is.
