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.

Ist zwar schon ne Weile her mit der Publikation, ich möchte Sie aber jenen nicht vorenthalten, die davon vielleicht  noch nicht gehört haben: The KWALON Experiment: Discussions on Qualitative Data Analysis Software by Developers and Users. Forum Qualitative Social Research. 12 (1). 2011. Es wird der Einsatz der hier verschlagworteten Programme (Atlas.ti, Cassandre, MAXQDA, NVivo, Transana) erklärt, diskutiert und verglichen. Hervorzuheben ist vor allem die Gegenüberstellung der Entwickler- und Nutzerperspektiven.  Und wem der eine oder andere Beitrag seltsam bekannt vorkommt, der hat vielleicht daran gedacht. Die Zeitschrift FQS sei im übrigen jedem ans Herz gelegt, der sich mit qualitativer Forschung beschäftigt.
