Members and roles

With its members feature, Lingohub provides you with a team collaboration system that allows you to easily manage your team members' responsibilities and resource access in an efficient way.

Understanding the member roles

A member can have one of the following roles :

  • Owner - This is the highest role a member can have. An owner can manage all the organization settings and has full access to all projects. When you create an organization, you have the owner role by default.


  • Administrator - An administrator has full access to all projects and can manage some organization settings. An administrator can also be given permission to manage translation orders and to access the organization's billing information.

  • Translator - A translator can edit languages and change the status of text segments in all projects. In addition, the translator can be given the permissions to access resource files, upload new resource files, use integrations (repository connections), and maintain term bases.

    Note: You must assign target languages for every translator. In addition, a translator can only edit term bases, not create or delete them.


  • Custom - While the previous roles are extended to all the projects within the organization, the custom role is limited to specific projects. For each project a member with a custom role is assigned to, you can define whether he/she is going to be an administrator or a translator.

    Note: For the custom role, select the projects the user has access to. Then, add the project-specific role for each project for the user, by clicking on the cog icon. If you set the role to translator, set the specific languages the user has access to.

Understanding the members' view

Below is a summary of the information provided on the members page as well as the actions that can be performed on it.


1 - Invite member button to add a new member to the organization.

Inviting a new member to join the organization consists of the following steps:

  • Adding the email address of the person you want to invite
  • Choosing the role that will be assigned to the new member


You need to have permission to manage members to invite a new member to the organization.

2 - Projects of the organization are listed here. Clicking on one of them filters the members list and displays the members that are collaborating on the selected project.

3 - Bulk select members to remove them

4 - The role of the member

5 - The number of projects in which the member is collaborating

6 - Update the member's role or remove him/her from the organization


If there is only one owner in the organization, the role cannot be changed neither can the owner be removed from the organization because an organization always needs to have at least one owner.
