Home Business IT Business Telecommunications QSR adds Chinese and four other languages to NVivo 9

QSR International's NVivo 9 qualitative data analysis software has been localised for an additional five languages.

QSR International, a Melbourne-based company with its roots at Latrobe University, has carved out a niche in software to support social scientists and others deal with qualitative data. Its NVivo 9 product for analysing unstructured data is now available in Simplified Chinese, Spanish, German, French and Portuguese as well as English.

"Giving researchers the option to work in our NVivo 9 software in the language they are most comfortable with means they can gain valuable insight from their data more efficiently, and ultimately reach robust findings and answer their questions faster," said CEO John Owen.

"All NVivo 9 users can access and switch seamlessly between any of the six languages NVivo 9 is now available in, and this new functionality is completely free of charge for our existing NVivo 9 users," he added.

The new language capability was welcomed by Professor Li Liu of the School of Psychology at Beijing Normal University. "NVivo provides Chinese researchers and practitioners with a unique platform to embark on their qualitative research project, and to capture the complexity, richness and nuances of Chinese language," he said.

In related news, the company announced support for the UK National Centre for Social Research's Framework analysis through NVivo's new framework matrices functionality.
