Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

The main localization management roles in a POEditor project are owner and admin. Although these roles are fairly similar, there are a few important differences between them:

  1. Administrators can’t delete projects – Unlike the owner, the administrators are limited with regard to the possibility of deleting the localization project(s) they are administrating.

  2. Administrators can’t add or delete other administrators – Administrators can be added to a localization project only by the project's owner, by introducing the name and e-mail address of the chosen person in the corresponding fields in Project Settings.

  3. Administrators don’t have access to the Bitbucket, GitLab, GitHub or Azure DevOps integration pages – For privacy reasons, admins can’t access the integration pages for code hosting platforms. The access is restricted to the owner who set the credentials on the account. Users can allow another person (a POEditor user or not) to manage data between POEditor and their repos with webhooks.

  4. Administrators can't see the Activity Log or Webhooks Log for the projects hosted on the owner's account account, because the events in these projects are logged in the account hosting the projects only. An admin can, however, view the API Log, if they use their own API key to manage the data between POEditor and their instance.

To add an administrator to a localization project, go to Project Settings and, in the Access to Project section, press the Add Administrator button.

Note: As administrator in a software translation project managed with the POEditor localization platform, you can't share your subscription (a paid plan bought for your account) with the owner of the project you're administrating. You can become an Alternative Payer, though, and manage all the financial aspects of the owner's account.
