The Transana Tutorial is designed to help you learn how to use the tools and features of Transana.

There are three versions of Transana, which are described below. Please choose the Tutorial version developed for the Transana version you plan to use.

The Tutorial Overview pages at the heart of the Tutorials are designed to show all of the topics in the Tutorial in a single page. There is a logical progression of topics from top to bottom, but this layout also allows users to select the topics they want to review in any order they desire.

If you are using the Transana Demonstration version, select the Tutorial for Transana Professional, but please be aware that the Tutorial will describe features that are not available in the Demonstration version.

Transana Basic is a simplified version of Transana, allowing the analysis of individual media files, but without the complexity of Transana’s more advanced features. It is great for students who are learning qualitative analysis, and for researchers with relatively straightforward collections of single camera video or audio data. You can transcribe, code, categorize, analyze and annotate your video and audio data, and create a wide variety of useful reports.

Transana Professional is the full-featured version of Transana for individual researchers.  Transana Professional includes all of the media analysis features of Transana Basic and adds the ability to import and analyze text, PDF files, still image data, and survey data, as well as allowing the analysis of more complex video and audio data including multiple simultaneous media files and multiple simultaneous transcripts. It also provides additional sophisticated reports that allow very broad insights into your data.

Transana Multiuser has all of the nimble, sophisticated features of Transana Professional, but in a format that allows teams of researchers to share the same data at the same time, from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Along with the tools and features of Transana Professional it has additional features that allow research teams to work on their project data collaboratively and share analysis efficiently.
