Only Organization Administrators can create a team. If you don't have any projects in your organization yet, a team will be automatically created for you when you create your first project.

Creating Translation Teams

Teams work to get your projects translated. If you're translating with your community or an agency, you'll need to create a team and invite collaborators to join the team before translations can start. If you plan to only order translations from our partners, you can simply create a team and skip inviting collaborators.

To create a translation team:

  1. In the main navigation, click on the Teams tab.

  2. Click on the Create new team button in the header.


    A new team will appear on the page among the list of existing teams. New teams are always named Team # (where # is a number).

To rename a team:

  1. Find the team you want to edit from the list of teams.

  2. Click on the gear icon for that team.

  3. In the popup, enter a new name into the Team name field.


  4. Hit Apply to make the changes.


If the option "Automatically accept requests from translators to join your team" is enabled, then any join team request is automatically approved. The requester becomes a member of the translation team without waiting for the team manager or language coordinator to manually approve them as a new collaborator.

You're now ready to invite collaborators to join the team!

Managing teams

It is important to mention that one team can work on many projects but one project can be assigned to only one team.

Configuring teams

One easy approach is to have one master team working on all projects. Create one big team with all needed collaborators and assign this team to multiple/all projects. You would need to manually invite all necessary collaborators, and then assign this team to all projects.

If you need different teams to work on different projects (ex. in-house translators, Team 1, to work on the Marketing website project and vendors, Team 2, to work on the Product strings project), then you can assign Team 1 to certain projects and Team 2 to the other projects.

Changing a team name

Changing a team name will not affect the team setup. The team members and projects assigned will remain the same.

Moving a project to another team

If you’d like to un-assign a team from a particular project, you need to move the project to another team. Each project in Transifex has to be assigned to a team. As described above, you might have one team assigned to multiple projects or a few teams assigned to a few different projects.
