If no source language is specified, the translation algorithm analyzes the text to determine the language of the provided text.

In most cases, you probably nest macros into the source text input box, e.g. to insert the current clipboard content or to insert a variable.

The gear icon allows you to fine-tune AI related parameters.

The true strength lies in integrating the AI macro with other PhraseExpress macro functions. Right-click the input box and choose the appropriate macro function from the popup menu to incorporate it into the AI macro.

You can leave the input empty and just prompt OpenAI to generate any text, e.g. "write a random cookie recipe".
