I have a requirement for non-numeric response data to be encrypted in the LimeSurvey database at the time responses are provided, and decrypted when running analysis or exports.

I don't believe LimeSurvey 1.9/2.0 supports this.

I would be willing to hire a developer who is familiar with LimeSurvey to have this functionality built if the price meets my client's budget.

I look forward to any feedback.

It may not be exactly what you want, but I use php to encrypt LimeSurvey data immediately after the "Submit" button is pressed. This technique uses LimeSurvey's "End URL" setting to direct to a link for the php script. It happens very quickly and without the user's awareness.

As for decrypting, I use Navicat to run an export script (we use MySQL).

I realize that you would like LimeSurvey to do all of this, but at least this might give you something to go on in case this feature is not added.
