No, to the best of my knowledge, there is no feature in Trados 2015 that allows one to see who translated what in an SDLXLIFF file. The SDLXLIFF file simply does not keep track of who translated and who edited any given segment.
The TM does keep track of this information, to a limited degree. Two fields in the TM are "created by" and "modified by", but I haven't been able to test if these fields actually do what they seem to do. In either case, even if the "created by" field reliably indicates who created the segment, you can only see who was the last person to have edited the segment.
I was unable to figure out how to filter a TM by e.g. creation ID, in Trados 2015 itself, so I guess one would have to export the TM to some other format, e.g. TMX. You can use this converter to convert the SDLTM files to TMX:
I publish a shared project so that 4 translators can work on it simultaneously.
I'm afraid I know nothing of shared projects, so my comments above may not be applicable.

Do you really want to exercise such a constrained control on the work of your freelancers?
Of course. How else would you determine how much work each translator did, so that you can pay them for how much work they did?
