We just got an enquiry on the ‘shoutbox’ which I thought was worth posting on the Forum. That is, does NVivo cope with right to left languages such as Arabic?
Here is my response:
There two things to consider here. The interface (what language the menus and toolbars are available in) and the data itself. In what languages can I import and code transcripts? The software interface (menus and toolbars) are available in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese or Simplified Chinese. You can import transcripts in any language. However, right to left languages such as Arabic do not perform well in Nvivo. There are workarounds and I have personal experience of working with Arabic coders where we successfully completed projects but not without some technical difficulties. Hope this answers your question but if you want more information, contact us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
