Personally, I am not surprised the translation turned up with problems since there was no collaboration between translator and the nurse in charge, or other authors.

An unexpected twist to the article was the nurse's reaction to the issues raised, essentially calling Mizrahi a liar in saying that no such discrepancies existed. Sounds like there is more to this story than meets the eye. But for the time being, the English version of this particular test should probably not be used in any official capacity.
