All-in-One Qualitative Analysis Software

Use MAXQDA to manage your entire research project. Easily import data from text documents, interview transcripts, focus groups, online surveys, web pages, images, audio and video files, spreadsheets, bibliographic data, YouTube data, and even tweets. Organize your data in groups, link relevant quotes to each other, and share and compare work with your team members. Your project file remains flexible and you can gradually expand and refine your category system to fit your research.

Code, Retrieve & Explore

Mark important information in your data with different codes by using codes, colors, symbols, or emoticons. Code quickly via drag & drop or with automatic coding, search for words and organize your thoughts and theories in Memos that can be linked to any element of your project. Retrieve your coded segments with one click or use MAXQDA’s powerful search tools to explore how a word or phrase is used in your project data and build your theory.


Great ideas will often occur to you while you’re reading or coding your data. Memos are the perfect place to note them down. The unique MAXQDA Memo Manager and lexical search function guarantee immediate access to every single memo at any time. Memos are also great for creating audit trails or for paraphrasing passages into your own words.

Analyze and transcribe media files

Use MAXQDA to code audio and video files directly without creating a transcript first. Or transcribe your media to analyze the written text instead – while always staying connected to the original media clips. MAXQDA has extended transcription functions for adapting the speed or the sound volume of your audio and video files and use foot pedals to speed up the transcription.
