Adding New Users

When you start a new Rosetta site for your locale, you are set as an Editor with a complementary role of Translation Editor and as such, you will be able to add new users with different roles to your locale. For a better understanding of user roles on a locale check out the Roles and Capabilities page.

Configure the automatic email notifications for new translation editors Configure the automatic email notifications for new translation editors

Whenever someone is added as a General Translation Editor or Project Translation Editor they now get a notification via email to let them know that they have been added as a translation editor.

The email includes a list of the projects (name + link) and some other links to help them getting started. Beside the default links, each locale team can extend the email with other helpful resources. To do that you have to create a new navigation menu in the admin of your local main site and assign it to the Resources for translation editors menu location.

Resources for translation editors

The email for General Translation Editors is a bit different, since they are likely part of the team for a bit longer. The email requests them to fill their WordPress.org profile, register on Slack and to subscribe for notifications for their locales.

You’ll find the related strings in the rosetta project at https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/meta/rosetta.
