Is this sentence correct:

"When somebody interferes in my work, I don't like it."

Personally, I would use with instead of in:

"When somebody interferes with my work..."

I'd say it's OK, but would use 'with', like Red. ;-)

From a Google search:

  • "interferes with" = 202,000
    "interferes in" = 7,950
