Help needed to translate a paper from German to English

Skills: Translation - Linguistic: from German to English, Inclusion/Exclusion
Pharmacological interventions for preventing bleeding in people requiring elective hip or knee surgery: a systematic review and network meta-analysis

We have been funded through an NIHR Programme grant to produce a set of Cochrane reviews. The literature searches done for one of the reviews identified a German paper.

I can send a pdf of the paper that need translating once I've received it (currently on order from the British Library). We would only need English translation of the Objectives, Methods, Results and tables.

The first step would be to assess if the trial discussed in the paper is eligible for the inclusion in the review. If it doesn't fulfil our inclusion criteria we would exclude it at this stage, however if it did that's when we would need help with translation. Full translation would not be needed if the trial was ineligible.

Once the pdf is sent, we would like eligibility to be confirmed in next 2 weeks then translation if eligible. A time deadline cannot be given, as this will depend on the paper and the amount of text to be translated.
