Professional practices Faina Furman endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a native speaker of Russian, a professional linguist with an M.A. in English Language, Literature and Translation Studies. I teach English for Academic Purposes (EAP) at the University of Haifa, Israel. In addition to frontal teaching, I write educational materials for an e-learning component of EAP courses and am involved in research.

As a freelance translator, I have translated and edited a variety of articles, documents, reports, manuals, marketing materials and questionnaires from English into Russian and from Russian into English.

In addition to harmonization and proofreading, my expertise in linguistic validation of questionnaires for clinical studies includes cognitive debriefing: recruiting and interviewing subjects/patients, summarizing respondents' feedback and providing suggestions for refining the translation.
