    Please help me with this problem. I cannot change the text. As I translated from Persian to English, I couldn't change it so much.
    Please correct my mistakes if you encounter any.

    Well, you need to change it so that it's comprehensible! You might need another Persian/English speaker to help you. Without understanding the original, it's hard for us to say what is or is not a good translation.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That doesn't help! Please provide a detailed explanation.

    That's a long story. The reviewer of our article didn't understand the sample. So, he mentioned some issues and revisions. He didn't understand our statistical calculations. What I translated is our response to him.

    Anyway, don't worry. He is not good at English. My translation will be beyond his expectation. Do you remember "reverse translation"? He created that!!!

    What we have chosen- as the sample- are some relationship episodes. Because they are perfect. The mastery-scale manual shows that.

    I wouldn't use "complete" in that context, and "perfect" sounds subjective and unsuitable too. I can think of "stable", but I don't know if that's what you mean.
    It would help a lot if you could provide a sentence (from your text) for us to look at.
