What roles are available? 🔗

Translator 🔗

Translator is the lowest role available, meaning all translations from this user have to go through the review process before they’re approved as a current version. They cannot do the review themselves, nor edit glossary or anything else in the project.

Trusted translator 🔗

Trusted translators compared to Translators have one unique privilege. Their new translations are approved automatically, effectively skipping the review process. Give this role to contributors whose work doesn’t need checking or proof-reading.

Reviewer 🔗

Reviewer role has the review feature enabled. This role is here to proof-read all the translations from Translators and also can translate on his own. Translations made by Reviewers are also approved automatically. Moreover, reviewers can upload screenshots, edit the project glossary, add new terms and their translations to it.

Manager 🔗

Manager role has basically the same privileges as a Reviewer with one addition, they can manage source language phrases. Managers can also edit other user’s roles and invite people to the project.

Owner 🔗

Owners can do everything available in the project. They can manage integrations, contributors and project settings. Owners can also translate or review without approval.

Project owners cannot manage billing and order translations. Organization role is always required for this permission.
