Import your Word files (RTF)
Import all your texts into the program and start reading and analyzing. f4analyse helps you to structure your material, to clearly organize findings, to find exciting passages and to export a clear overview of your findings.
Memos & Comments
Write down ideas and interpretations
Record notes in memos for text passages or write comments for texts and codes. Memos are visible similarly to a messenger chat and comments are displayed in the field below the text or code. This is where you can note case summaries, code definitions or interpretations.
Smart: You can also code memos to structure your thoughts further.
Create codes and code texts & memos
Codes allow you to structure your texts and memos. Regardless if developed inductively or deductively the coding system is organized clearly and hierarchically. You can choose from 24 different colors for your codes. Coded passages are underlined with the respective color in the text (several when applicable).
One click to show all coded segments - and press F4 to hear them!
Selection & Search Function
Filter quotations from texts and codes
Display specific quotations from selected texts and codes. This allows you to break down text passages into different sub-codes and to read, condense and compare statements from individuals or groups.
The lexical search function enables quickly displaying and auto coding search results and their context.
Exportable matrix and frequency distribution
The code distribution table displays the frequency of codes per text. The assigned quotes can be displayed with one click and so you can easily compare cases and topics.
Numbers as well as a table of quotes can be exported to Excel or SPSS.
Teamwork & Exchange
Open for many platforms
Use your Windows, Mac, Linux PC or your iPad and Android when travelling. The versions are always compatible. Your data are saved in open XML format and can easily be exported to Word, Excel, MAQDA and SPSS.
If you are working in a team you can exchange and merge the entire project or just the coding tree.
Reflective interpretation, summary or motives
The new view helps evaluate motives, interpretations and condensations. Memos, comments or quotations belonging to a code or text are clearly arranged and can be condensed in the comment field below.

Our practical handbook “manual (on) transcription” demonstrates how to start your transcription and analysis.
Perhaps you are still wondering whether f4analyse or MAXQDA can better support your qualitative analysis? We have compiled a comparison that can at the very least help you to make an informed decision. These are the differences between f4analyse and MAXQDA.
Many f4analyse users work with qualitative text analysis. This methodology is a comprehensible and feasible approach, especially for beginners, and it is suitable for many research questions.
