  1. Visit the team's page and click the "Invite Collaborators" button in the upper right corner.

  3. Select the user's role in the team (you need to select Language Coordinator, Reviewer, or Translator - the user's role in a source language group does not matter, meaning you can choose any of the above options).

  4. Next, find the translation team assigned to the specific project in Transifex.

  5. Finally, select the project's source language (en_CA) from the drop-down menu.

Once the user is invited, they will only be able to view strings. To do that, he needs to click on the source language of the project and then "View strings online" as follows:

If the user tries to click on other languages of the project, the following message will appear, preventing him from entering the editor mode:
