Translation help please: english to german

Hello
Wondering if anyone could please 'proof read' my rubbish online translation please. I have to leave a note for the builders that have been plaguing my balcony for the last few months as i can never catch them (or know what to say!).
I have it from online translation as this:
"Vielen Dank für den Austausch der Bildschirm zwischen Balkon.
Bitte die beiden Stühle und den Bildschirm / Abdeckung, die auf dem Geländer, whoch während Ihrer Werke entfernt wurden, war auch zurück.
Vielen Dank!"
And would like to say this (without sounding too arsey):
"Many thanks for replacing the screen between balconies.
Please also return the two chairs and the screen/cover that was on the railings, whoch have been removed during your works.
Many thanks!"

Thanks in advance for any help

Besten Dank für die neue Trennwand zwischen den Balkonen. Bitte stellen Sie auch die zwei Stühle sowie die Blende/Abdeckung welche auf dem Geländer waren und während Ihrer Arbeiten entfernt wurden wieder zurück. Vielen Dank

It's called google translate. Go to google, search translate and it'll be the first thing that comes up.

I gave it a try and hoped Google would be able to translate that minimal bit correctly. It's not quite correct, though close enough. I'm actually glad, tells me computers are not likely to replace the human brain any time soon


Anyway to the guy with the long user name:

1 - Shipping papers inside:
Versandpapier beiliegend (not sure wether you're sending a parcel or something, so don't know where "inside" is referring to and might use a different translation if I knew)

2 - Number of pages including this: 5
Anzahl Seiten inkl. dieser: 5
