This documentation refers to PhraseExpress v5 beta. The documentation for current v4 is available here.

Sharing phrases

PhraseExpress offers following options to share phrases with multiple users:

  • Phrase libraries can be synchronized "peer-to-peer" by using a local network share (NAS) or over the internet with a cloud synchronization service, such as DropBox, OwnCloud, etc.
  • PhraseExpress clients can connect to a SQL Server that hosts a central phrase database. The SQL server can be installed on-premise or in the cloud (Azure, Amazon AWS).

Access to individual phrases can be restricted to specific users, workgroups and domains.

Phrases can be shared with PhraseExpress for Windows. Due to different text formatting systems between Mac and Windows, phrases with bitmaps cannot be synchronized. The PhraseExpress for Mac version supports a subset of the macro functions available in the Windows version.
