Priority Setting Exercise on Multiple Sclerosis
The Cochrane Neurological Sciences Field with the Multiple Sclerosis Cochrane Group has carried out a priority setting exercise in Cochrane research on Multiple Sclerosis. 

We carried out an international survey in 12 different languages  - including Norwegian -  that ran from October 2020 to February 2021.  

The aim of the exercise is to prioritize research questions for the next agenda in systematic review production in Multiple Sclerosis, and to consider a multi perspective stakeholder point of view including patients and carers. The survey asked participants to choose 3 important questions from among the 16 proposed in the survey. They were then asked to explain in free text why they think their choices were important. More importantly, participants were given the opportunity to add a new question that they felt was important to their experience with the disease. 

The fantastic result is that we have 1360 participants who have given their indications and ideas on priority research in Multiple Sclerosis from around the world, of which more than 400 respondents are Norwegian. 
 
The task we are asking for help with is translating the free text contained in the survey responses.  These are mainly in the form of short sentences and 'Title' suggestions. The total number of words to be translated is: 34.247 words in Norwegian.  

Translators will be acknowledged in the research paper and any presentations regarding the survey. They will also acquire points in the Cochrane task exchange system.
