Please tell me quality of the translation

I want someone to translate articles from my nation, language to English and I want to tell me is his English is good?
Sample of his translation:

"In total, 22 people aged above 60 who were able and willing to share their experiences regarding spirituality took part in this study. None of the participants had any major mental or physical issues. The participants for this study were selected through friends and relatives in their usual living environments. Interviews were then coded and based on the principles of content data analysis they
were categorized into main categories"

It looks okay to to me.

The first two sentences are clear and concise.

This line reads a bit strange to me but depending on what the original text said, it might well be the best possible translation. It is the word "coded" that I am finding a problem. To me sorted might be a better choice. That well be the difference between a technical paper and general conversation.

As a freelancer writer, the text is a little odd, but it is understandable enough. If it isn't for a very important English class or something similar, I wouldn't worry about it!

As far as I can see, you write a descent paragraph of text which is easy to understand without much error. You can definitely be sure that you are doing good. I have seen iwriters who write so dumb.
