The Cochrane Editorial and Methods Department, Knowledge Translation Department and authors of the MECIR Standards encourage translations of the MECIR Standards in order to support the engagement of people with different native languages in Cochrane Review production. 

The MECIR Standards are the ‘how-to’ guides for conducting, reporting and updating Cochrane Intervention Reviews, Protocols and Updates. The MECIR Standards for the conduct of new Cochrane Intervention Reviews are embedded throughout the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions.

Translation proposals will be assessed and approved by the Cochrane Methods team and the Translations Coordinator. Please see the Cochrane MECIR translations guidance for full details on the conditions that must be met for MECIR translations, how to initiate a MECIR translation and keeping it up-to-date.

If you are interested in translating the MECIR Manual, or have any questions about the process or other general queries, please contact Cochrane Methods.
