Managing Roles of Project Members

With the help of roles, you can provide project members with the access they need to accomplish the job they’re responsible for. Both the owner and managers can invite project members and change their roles.

Project Roles

Below you can see the roles and permissions users can have in Crowdin Enterprise

  • Owner – a person who created a project and has complete control over it. The owner can invite and manage project members, create projects, upload source and translation files to the project, set up integrations, etc.
    Note: Project ownership can't be changed.
  • Manager – has similar rights as a project owner except the ability to manage some of the owner’s Resources (e.g., configuring MT engines, custom workflows, etc.) and delete projects.
  • Proofreader – can translate and approve strings. Unlike the manager, the proofreader doesn’t have access to project settings.
  • Translator – can translate strings and vote for translations added by other members.
  • Blocked – doesn’t have access to the project.

  2. Click Details towards a needed member in the list.

Languages Permissions

By default, when you invite translators to your project, they will have access to all target languages.

To configure more specific access to target languages for your translators, follow these steps:

  1. Open your project and go to the Members tab.
  2. Click Details towards a needed member in the list.
  3. In the appeared dialog, switch to the Permissions tab.
  4. Select the needed languages a member should have access to. You can simultaneously set both the Translator and Proofreader roles to the same member with specific language permissions (e.g., Translator with access to Ukrainian and Proofreader with access to French).
  5. Click Save.

Q&A

Q: I’m a project owner. Do I need to invite a manager or a proofreader?

A: The main difference between a manager and a proofreader is the following: in addition to approving translations added by translators, managers can also invite and remove project members, upload source and translation files to the project, set up integrations, etc.

If you want to have a project member who should have access to the features mentioned above, you need to invite a project manager. Alternatively, if you plan to manage the project yourself, it will be enough to invite a proofreader.
