I need urgently to seek advice on a bizarre altercation with an agency manager that does not relate to any job done, yet on the basis of the briefest of email exchanges ended with a final email announcing that she was unilaterally placing me under interdiction with no less than 14 agencies in Germany. Perhaps i should send you the email exchange? The issue is so serious that it evidently requres an impartial forum, but at this point i dont know where to go. Are there professional translator organisations in germany, i.e., that have clout, agency organisations, boards etc. that can advise on the ethical and even legal implications of what has happened.? Thanks in advance for your response

Hi Michael,
I'm afraid nobody can help you without some more details. However, be very careful not to mention the agency's or the PM's names. Your post would be most probably hidden by a moderator.
Anyway, the language of this forum is German, so wir sollten eigentlich Deutsch verwenden.

That is the German translator's association.

Good luck!
