Transana 2.60 released

Already in January, a new version of Transana was released: Transana 2.60, a software for qualitative analysis and transkription. The developers statement:

The latest version of Transana allows researchers to bring still images into their qualitative analyses in several interesting ways. Features include:

– capturing images from video or importing graphics files from the hard disk

– selecting the size and framing to emphasize part of an image

– adding “coding shapes”, allowing reseachers to code images by drawing on them

– linking still images to particular places in video files, if appropriate for providing context

– including still images in Transana’s Reports and, if linked to media files, Transana’s Maps.

You can see a demonstration of these new features at< , particularly starting at about 3:58 in the video.

See the Release Notesfor more details about the new release.

Litassist und Preplit wurden soeben in unsere Datenbank übernommen. Beides sind Tools, die die LIteraturrecherche vereinfachen sollen. Darüberhinaus ist Litassist auch zur Literaturverwaltung geeignet. Ob sich die Kosten für eine kommerzielle LIzenz lohnen, können wir im Moment nicht abschätzen. Preplit kann man in einer abgespeckten Variante auch kostenlos nutzen.
