What is Transdown?

Transdown is a lightweight syntax for writing and presenting transcripts of qualitative research data.

Right now, Transdown also lets you live preview and export your transcript as you work on it in Inqscribe.

What does it look like in action?

Transdown lets you write raw transcript like this:

### Rebecca's gestural pseudo-coding    

[00:33:33.25] Rebecca: and then my thinking at least, is you
should be able to, um, say that "star p of i" /mmhmm/
equals, uh, the title, and then you just do i++, so then
it’ll {{move to the next one}} !{makes looping gesture with
left hand}[1] /OK/

[00:34:00.12] Rebecca: and you just keep {{saving each of
the pointers}} !{left hand makes horizontal chops in the
air, like rungs down a ladder}[2]

and have it automatically rendered as a beautiful table like this:
