This documentation refers to PhraseExpress v17 beta. The documentation for the production version 16 is available here.

Use on the road

Depending on how you share phrases with other users, you can use PhraseExpress on the road as well, while being disconnected from the local network.

Portable Edition

If you do not use any (SQL) server to share phrases, you can run PhraseExpress from a portable USB thumb drive and use that with any computer on the road.

SQL Server

If using a SQL server to share phrases in the network, you can download all phrases to your computer for offline use on demand.

To make phrases from a SQL server available offline:
  1. Open the PhraseExpress main program window.
  2. Right-click the SQL server phrase node and select menu option "Use offline":

PhraseExpress downloads all phrases from the SQL server for use abroad. This may take a while.

To return to the local SQL server, repeat the steps above.

Offline databases cannot be edited.

The PhraseExpress client must connect to the SQL server after a couple of days to refresh license status.
