SQL Server

PhraseExpress supports Microsoft SQL Server connections to share phrases with a client-/server architecture in professional/enterprise networks.


Benefits of using PhraseExpress with a SQL server compared to serverless use:

  • All clients are always up-to-date at any given time.
  • SQL servers are designed to handle a large number of clients and large databases.
  • Multiple users can edit the phrase database simultaneously.
  • The client-/server architecture prevents write collisions and version conflicts.
  • Clients load the phrase contents on demand in the moment of text insertion to minimize memory consumption on the local clients.
  • The phrase database is centrally stored and can be included in your existing SQL backup mechanism.
  • License keys are centrally managed.
  • You can define "master users" with extra credentials. Those have general access to all phrases and can centrally configure client program settings of all users.
  • Each user can have a personal phrase folder to store their personal phrases.
  • Also works over the internet if using an Amazon/Azure SQL server.
