Lilt comes with four default roles to help you easily manage your translation team within Lilt: administrator, manager, translator, and reviewer.

This article outlines the permissions for each of the default roles. If you need to add additional roles, you can create them using Custom Roles.

Job and Project permissions

This permission table applies to Jobs and Projects created by administrators and managers of the organization. Jobs and Projects created by translators and reviewers are treated as private projects that aren’t accessible by the organization. Read more about this in the Team Resources article.
