Word Frequency in Chinese not working

Recommended Posts


I'm using Nvivo for Mac and have a student license and using Mac OS Catalina.

My data is in Mandarin. Text search works fine. Word frequency only shows the frequency of single Chinese characters. Most Chinese words are a combination of two characters. I have tried adjusting the minimum length to 2. This does not produce any results. I would like to see the word frequency query to include the two character and even three character words.

I've attached a screen shot of what happens with the Word Frequency search. I have also set language to Chinese under Project Properties.

Please advise,

Hi John,
