Yes additional permissions are required. I believe there's a translators
group and a way to grant permissions per page.
I don't have time today to look into it but someone should be able to
handle the request in the next few days.

Generally yes Webcom, but if they aren't active Outreach(Marketing) can
refer to the System Admin asking for permissions.
