Introducing Teams and Language Coordinators

By Edouard on April 24, 2017

Today we’d like to introduce you to one of our biggest features so far: Teams. It includes the creation of a new role within an organization: Language Coordinator.


Teams is a completely new feature which will only be available to organizations on our new plans. It isn’t available to organizations on our “Legacy” plans.

Teams simplifies user permission management across projects. It lets you define a team of people with its permissions under one organization.

While you can also invite users directly to a project, Teams lets you create a group of people on the organization level, which means it will be possible to re-use this team on all the projects on your organization.

Once created, the Team can be assigned to as many projects as you want.

This feature is unavailable to organizations on a “Legacy” plan. It is only available for organizations on a Free Trial, or on the Micro, Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large plans and onwards.
You can upgrade your organization from a “Legacy” plan to the one of the new plans on the organization Billing page.

You can learn more about Teams in our documentation.

Teams are also available through the API using the Team and TeamMember APIs.

Language Coordinators

Since we were busy building Teams, we tackled another important feature request: Language Coordinators.

A language coordinator is a person on a project who has the same permissions as a translator, but also has the permission to add or remove translators in his language on a Team or Project. This is useful for translating projects with very large teams.

You can learn more about the role of Language Coordinators and other roles in WebTranslateIt in our documentation.

We hope you will find these improvements useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.
