Roles per Locale
Roles per locale gives you more control over user roles in multi-language repositories.
Configure the roles per locale
Only Administrators can edit user roles. Let's go over the steps for inviting users and editing their roles.
Note about feature activation
When roles per locale is activated for the first time, anyone who wasn’t already an administrator will be able to view documents in all languages but without access to edit them. You’ll need to assign each member their new roles per locale to enable them to edit.
In your repository, go to Settings > Users. Send an invitation to a new user. You can grant or limit access to certain locales from the moment you send the invitation.
Edit user roles
Go to your repository's Settings > Users. Select the languages for each user using the + Add a locale button.
By default, everyone in the repository can see all documents in all existing locales, but they will only edit for the locales you give them access to.
The Roles per locale facilitates a collaborative translation workflow. Once you grant a specific role to a user, you can assign their role per locale. There are two main user roles: Contributors and Admins.
Once you grant the contributor role to a user, you can assign their role for each locale. Their role can be either Writer or Publisher.
- Create draft documents.
- Edit documents without publishing changes.
- View documents from other locales and copy them to permitted locales.
Publishers can do everything a Writer can do, plus:
- Review and publish drafts and edits.
- Schedule releases if they have publisher rights for every locale in the release.
Administrators can do everything a Contributor can do, plus:
- Access all locales.
- Modify user roles and permissions.
For more information about standard user roles, consult Manage Users.
