This method provides information if and how a user can access segments in the given scope . A scope can be a job, project, global search, a translation memory and so on.

Gives full answers to:

  • Can the user access segments in the scope in the first place? For example, a translator most often cannot access the segments in a project.
  • What are the accessible languages, segment fields, custom fields, labels, etc?
  • Which editing operations are allowed? Can I edit texts, meta information, split/merge etc?
  • What are the languages with code and name, custom field codes and names and so on?

This information can be used if you build a translation editing interface and you need to know in advance what information the user can access and modify.
