New team management and invitations

Hey Transifexians,

We have deployed a new, intuitive way to manage your translation teams. A responsive user experience which lets you make changes in the place you need them, instead of a complicated settings page.

On top of that, we have added the ability to invite people to join your teams on Transifex just by using their email, regardless of whether they already are members of Transifex or not. This is perfect for localization managers who are migrating their existing localization process into Transifex, as translators will no longer have to create an account themselves and validate their emails, but simply follow the link in their invitation when it appears in their inbox.

So, lets get started:

In your team-details page (e.g.,, if you are a team coordinator or project maintainer, you will see two buttons in the table headers for coordinators, reviewers and members: ‘add’ and ‘edit’.


The ‘add’ button opens the invitations popup for that role. Here you can search for existing Transifex users via username or email, or enter any email to send an invitation. Click ‘add’ to put what you just typed into a temporary list. Finally, click ‘apply’ to save your changes. You can also see a list of already sent invitations and revoke some of them if you want.


Existing Transifex users will be directly added to your team on ‘apply’, while invitations will be sent to email addresses. If your project uses a CLA, don’t worry, translators will need to sign it upon accepting an invitation.

The ‘edit’ button opens the team members controls. You can select a number of team members and either remove them from the team or promote them to a different role by clicking the appropriate buttons on the table headers.


All changes are updated on your page live.

You can also add people to your teams from the language overview page (e.g., by clicking the ‘add members’ button. The interface is the same as before, only you get to choose the role of the members you are adding in a dropdown menu.

Finally, the controls for managing the maintainers of a project have also changed. Under the project manage menu, we have added a ‘maintainers’ section. Inside it, there is the now all familiar controls for adding, inviting and removing maintainers.


We hope this new feature will make life easier and more fun for all of you. Please let us know of any feedback or suggestions on how you would like to manage your translation teams.
