I sympathize with your complaint but please do not stop translating because of
what happened; your translation was very helpful for those of us who are
clueless in German.

For future translations, by you or any other members of the list, I'd suggest
to include the original text (even with some mail headers in this case) next
to the translation. I must admit that when I read your translation I had to go
back to the original message in German, to realize what part belonged to
the translation.
