DeepL Integration

To broaden our automated translation offering, we have integrated DeepL as further translation service, besides Google Translate.

DeepL Integration (automatic translation) on Caplena

Customers preferring DeepL for privacy or quality reasons can now activate that option during the upload process.

Dashboards have arrived!

From excel sheets to storytelling

If you were the client, what would you prefer: A 50-slide Powerpoint or an interactive dashboard, maybe even with live results? Well, that's what we thought as well πŸ˜‰.

Caplena Demo Dashboard

Check out this sample dashboard to see what is possible.

Combine beautiful charts, your interpretation of them as well as extracts from the verbatims in one location. Then style and arrange all elements according to your corporate color scheme.

Send the results to your team / client and collect the kudos you deserve. No need for them to have a Caplena account, sharing a link is enough.

Caplena @ESOMAR Congress 2019

We'll have a booth at the ESOMAR Congress 2019 in Edinburgh this week (8th-11th of September). Make sure to say hi if you're there!

Caplena is "Newcomer of the year"

We’ve been awarded at the insights show β€œplanung&analyse Insights 2019” for our best-in-class artificial intelligence for text analytics.

This is only possible because of you, our valued user. We'd like to thank you for your trust and are looking forward to a great future with lots more features!

Chart improvements: Saving & more

Saving charts

This was (understandably) requested many times, so we of course built it. If you want to persist a chart, just hit save. You'll find your saved charts in the Manage charts view or through a project directly.

Weighting rows

Do you have custom weights you want to apply to your visualizations, to scale your sample correctly? Given you have a column with the weights in the file you uploaded, you'll be able to chose that in the visualizations.

Custom chart colors

Want to create your charts in colors that match your corporate identity? Send our team one or more color palettes and we'll set your account up accordingly.

Why did we change the name?

  • Our company has always been called Caplena. Having a different name for our main product doesn't make sense anymore.
  • Another company ( has already used this name for a while. We'd rather spend our time developing features than fighting over names.
  • Nobody could pronounce codit anyways, right?

What is going to change for me?

If you use the Web-Interface: Absolutely nothing, you will be redirected to automatically and continue your work as usual.

If you are using the API: Please change the base URL to The old URL ( will continue to work for another few weeks, then it will be shut down. The changes are already reflected in our sample client library.

Improved collaboration

Today, hardly anyone works on projects all alone. This is also true for our clients: Many have multiple team members collaborating to create exceptional results.

In recent months, we have therefore implemented several features which encourage working together.


Group all team members in one organization, allowing them to share projects, have a common billing account and apply the same settings/customizations.

Activity Indicators

Screenshot 2019-08-05 at 10.44.39.png To prevent you from overwriting your colleagues' coding by accident, we now show who is working on a specific project. There is even a method to explicitly take control of a project, transferring any other editing users to read-only mode.

Keyphrase detection & clustering

One of the most crucial steps towards in-depth insights into your textual data is the design of the codebook. At the same time, it is also one of the most challenging ones: Creating a meaningful, well distinguishable set of codes without knowing the data can be tedious.

We already partly addressed this challenge through our high-quality codebook templates. But we wanted to be even more helpful:

That's why we added clustered keyphrase extraction

The keyphrases help you to design your codebook even more seamlessly.

Keyphrase detection will automatically run within the codebook assistant, whenever you upload a new dataset without codebook.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Fancy, customizable visualizations πŸ“ˆπŸŒ 

Tired of the same old bar-chart?

Design eye-catching diagrams right from the app.


GraphLine & Pietile-treemap.jpgBar

Choose between bar, line, graph, treemap and graph charts, customize the look and feel and compare series over time or additional variables in your dataset. You'll find the new advanced visualizations where you found our standard bar-chart.
