Reload Language Configurations with the Term Transfer Tool

As well as deploying terms after an import, you can also use the term transfer tool to reload all language configurations without running an import first. By running the term transfer tool as part of a scheduled task, you can regularly reload language configurations and keep your users up-to-date with changes to your terminology and guidance package.

To reload language configurations with the term transfer tool, follow these steps:

Run the term transfer tool from the command line or in your shell environment with the following syntax.

On Windows: 

transfer.bat --deploy -u <userName> -p <password> -s <server>

On Unix-based operating systems: 

$ bash ./ --deploy -u <userName> -p <password> -s <server>

You use the following options and arguments to reload language configurations with the term transfer tool script. For each argument you can use either the abbreviated ("-d") or the full name ("-deploy"):

-? (--usage or --help)(Optional) Display help for the arguments.
-d (--deploy)Deploy the imported terms for checking after the import has completed. After the import, the term transfer tool automatically reloads the language configuration on all language servers.

You can only use this option when connecting to a server with the version 2.4 or later. You must also have the privilege "Reload language server configuration".

-s (--server) <serverAddress>Set the address of your Acrolinx Server.

If you are connecting to a secure server, include the port in the server address.


-u (--user) <userName>Set the user name that you use to log on to the Acrolinx Server.
-p (--password) <password>Set the password that you use to log on to the Acrolinx Server.
-k <API token>

(Optional) Send an API token to the server for authentication and authorization purposes. You can't use this along with the {{-p}} option, which specifies a password.

Note that the user for whom the API token was generated needs to have the "Access API-based terminology applications" privilege.


(Optional) Prints the version information to the command line.

If this option is present, the tool will ignore all other options and only print version information.
