Migrating from PhraseExpress Server to NAS/Cloud sync

Video tutorial (recommended!)

To switch from using the (retired) PhraseExpress Server to NAS/Cloud synchronization:
  1. Install the new PhraseExpress version over the previous version.
  2. PhraseExpress v16 can still connect to the PhraseExpress Server and shows the server phrase file node.
  3. Click "File » Open » Local phrase file" and type in the name for a new phrase file.
  4. Confirm to add the new phrase file as a new file node (do NOT select "replace").
  5. Copy/Move the phrases from the PhraseExpress Server node to the new phrase file node you just created.
  6. Unload the PhraseExpress Server node in the PhraseExpress client.
  7. De-register the license keys in the PhraseExpress Client Manager if your licenses have remaining maintenance. Those can be continued to be used in the new installation.
  8. Uninstall the PhraseExpress Server.
  9. Configure file synchronization for the new local phrase file to share the phrases with other users.

Important: Launch the PhraseExpress client under a user account which grants you access to all phrases you wish to export!
