unfortunately, Italian cuts of meat are different from English or French cuts, I'm used to English cuts and it would a lot easier for me to deal with them
If I'm not badly mistaken, Swiss cuts are different from English ones too, and I do not assume that a Swiss butcher who speaks English has to know the English cuts just because of his language skills. Of course, if those skills were acquired in the UK while working as a butcher there, matters may look different.

Moreover, since the different cuts involve large chunks of meat, I cannot quite imagine that a butcher can serve all your demands. You cannot just cut one or two slices out of a cow.
