Member Roles

Team member roles allow managers and admins control their workflow and access to assignments. 


  • Go to Settings Permissions page to view different roles and change their permissions to fit your ideal workflow. 


Here are just a couple of useful scenarios where member roles can help your team achieve success:


  • A Language Manager has the responsibility to complete review assignments in their language

  • Limited Contributor is a great role for beginners because in that role members cannot take review or approval assignments


Change Plan or Order Subtitles

To update your payment method, add seats, or add languages for your Amara Enterprise team, click Subtitle Orders at the top of the page.


Subtitle Orders tab highlighted in Amara team page


You can also order subtitles from Amara's professional subtitling service, Amara On Demand, from this page. Amara On Demand's linguists work in their native language to transcribe, translate, and review high-quality subtitles for local audiences to enjoy. Select the videos that you want to order subtitles for, then specify the languages and additional details, review your order, and submit your subtitle order. 


Currently, Enterprise teams can only order English, Spanish, Portuguese-Brazilian, Arabic, Russian, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). To request subtitles from Amara On Demand in other languages, fill out this form on Amara.
