Restore phrases

Deleted phrases can be restored from the recycle bin, by using the version history or by restoring from a data backup.

If using a PhraseExpress Server, you can restore earlier phrase file versions in the PhraseExpress Client Manager.

Recycle bin

Each phrase file/database has its own recycle bin from where you can restore deleted phrases and phrase folders.

To restore individual deleted phrases:
  1. Click the recycle bin icon in the phrase tree to expand its content
  2. Select the items you wish to restore.
  3. Click "Restore" in the main menu or drag & drop the items into a phrase folder of your choice.

Version history

You can review the last 99 edits of each phrase, including the time and name of the editor.

A real time preview shows you the changes for each edit and you can restore any such earlier version.

You can add notes to any phrase change and other users can add comments to the version history.
