Each user and each user group will have a config for allowed languages similar to the way we set permissions for sections. All allowed actions will work across the selected languages.

Example: if a user has access to the languages English and Danish and is allowed to update and publish nodes. These actions will be available for both languages.

I have added a couple of screenshot of how I think the config of permissions can be handled. The UI reuses the same idea as sections and start nodes. I have added screenshots for both the user editor and the user group editor (the user editor is a bit weird because it is scrolled down). In the user editor, we should also have a summary of the combined language permissions for the user like we do with start nodes.

Screenshots: 1: user group editor 2: user group editor - language picker 3: user editor
