MAXQDA 11 for Mac published (2014)
We are happy to introduce MAXQDA for Mac. The next milestone after 25 years of experience in developing one of the world’s best qualitative data analysis software on the market. MAXQDA is the first state-of-the-art QDA software in the world available for both Windows and Mac OS X.
Outstanding functionality, reliability, usability and aesthetics have always been and will remain our ‘BIG 4′ principles in the development of MAXQDA. They are a key reason why a constantly growing user community around the world trusts our products.
MAXQDA for Mac will be just as powerful as MAXQDA for Windows. Of course we have kept the intuitive four windows workspace, although we aimed for a sleeker design to make MAXQDA look and feel perfectly at home on your Mac screen.

Can I export my Mac projects to MAXQDA for Windows?
No. Please note that, in the coming months, project files will only be convertible from the Windows (.MX5) to the Mac format (.MX11). A conversion in the opposite direction is currently NOT possible. This means: A MAXQDA for Mac project is not compatible with the Windows version. We will ensure the full compatibility between the two data formats in the coming months.
