Release states will be applied to content during the different stages of the translation job life cycle.
Localize users need sufficient permissions to view and work with the content they will be editing.
The minimum permissions required for release states for import and export of the translation jobs are: List, Read, Modify, Change Into State, Change Out of State. If these permissions are not assigned, users will not be able to import or export translation jobs.
For the release states selected in Only send source objects in these release states for translation, the minimum permissions are List and Read.
For more information on how Release States are used by the Localize module, see: Release States Screen.
