German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / Non-Disclosure Agreement
German term or phrase:mit Wirkung für
"Vor obigem Laufzeitende kann jeder Vertragspartner diese Vereinbarung ***mit Wirkung für*** künftige Übermittlungen von vertraulichen Informationen durch schriftliche Mitteilungen an den anderen Vertragspartner mit einer Frist von 30 Tagen kündigen."
Yet another urgent query (sorry). If I had more time, I could probably figure out a lot of these things on my own. But anyway, what are they driving at with "mit Wirkung für" here? I take it the idea is that if the agreement is cancelled, no more confidential information will be transferred from one party to the other? TIA for your help.
I'll use the literal translation this time, as I think it works OK. But thanks to the others who offered an idea - and especially CMJ_Trans for his sage advice! :-) Appreciate everyone's help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
either party can give 30 days' written notice to the other
Explanation: and this notice will repercute on future exchanges of confidential information
this is what it says and therefore your understanding as +/- correct
though why they don't say it more directly, I cannot imagine unless it has something to do with the surrounding sentences.
Rowan, a word of advice: take a short break, have a coffee or something.
Then, just go through the whole translation quickly as you feel and when you've finished, print it out and read it calmly. You'll find most of these things will fall automatically into place.
Festina lente, as they say (make haste slowly). Don't let that deadline blind your normally clear vision.
OK - I may be preaching to the converted but I've been there, done that.....
