MAXQDA can help you with systematic analysis and interpretation of your data, e.g. interviews, newspaper articles, focus groups, images, videos and audio files, bibliographical data, Twitter tweets and even statistical data sets. It is a powerful tool for developing theories and testing the theoretical conclusions of the analysis. MAXQDA also has a full featured transcription tool on board.

MAXQDA is powerful, yet often praised for being the most intuitive QDA software available. The clearly structured main screen of MAXQDA is divided into four windows which reflect essential management work areas in the process of qualitative data analysis: • Document system – Your data • Code system -  Your code or category system • Document Browser – Single document view, always directly accessible • Retrieved Segments – Retrieval and search results
 

 
You can import documents, PDF articles, focus group transcripts, tables, images, media files, Twitter tweets and bibliographical data sets, organize them in document groups, and develop a system of categories. While reading or viewing your data in the document browser of MAXQDA you can assign codes to different segments of your data. Create and organize memos to keep track of your ideas and theories. Take advantage of various search functions, and present your
research with a wide range of visual tools, diagrams or the mapping tool MAXMaps. Multimedia functionality includes a full-featured transcription tool that let’s you transcribe using foot pedals.
