Managing Dictionary User Roles

Last Updated: Nov 11, 2016 04:19PM PST
Within each Language Community, there are two user roles: Language Steward and Language Contributor. These two roles function similar to Protocol Stewards and Contributors in cultural Protocols.

Language Stewards are responsible for managing Parts of Speech, creating new Word Lists, entering new Dictionary Words, editing words entered by Language Contributors and managing user roles within the language community.

Language Contributors are responsible for entering new Dictionary Words.

On the Dashboard, select Manage Language Communities from the Dictionary box.

Select the Language Community to be edited.

Select Group.


Select Add People.


Begin typing the username to be added – select the name from the drop-down menu that fills in.
Set the user as either a language contributor or language steward.
Click Add Users.


A confirmation message will be displayed. More users can now be added, or you can return to the rest of the site.
