How can you fight a wrong/unfair downvote?

I translated something and somebody downvoted the translation although it is not wrong.

Also it is possible that somebody misuses the downvote feature and I am wondering what can be done against it.

First the person did not answer, but after other users complained on his wall too he reacted - he was not aware of the rules. Still the downvotes are not deleted, but they disappear when you reach the next stage.

Have the same problem right now - just got two downvotes on an article from the same user, one time translation was completely correct, other time I had a typo in a long sentence...kinda annoying when I'm trying to make it out of the first tier. Already wrote on his wall... alexander490 and sijambo, if you could take a look at the article - I guess i basically just need to collect a few more upvotes and then I'm in the next tier and won't worry that much anymore...https://www.duolingo.com/translation/760cf55e43e2236655a702a07c97ade8

I had the same problem (someone downvoted all sentences that I had translated in that article). Because of that I contacted the member who had uploaded that article.

How can you see who downvoted? I received 23 downvotes today from probably one person that are not correct. I would love to politely contact him/her.
