Re: Swiss German to English translations

Like always for translations, context helps... especially if you have read your husband's sms. So general meaning, you have to transfer to the relevant context:
DOn't worry
enjoy your hollidays
Take it easy
It does hurt, but...
Have fun and enjoy every second
See you
ciao/"lovely salutations"

Re: Swiss German to English translations

Thanks a bunch!

I think that the below opening and then endding from the first letter may put it into context. It appears that somebody got hurt. Any translation of the below text would be great. Thanks in advance. Cheers.


"Wie hesch es??? Ich hoffe fest das Du z'schlag chunnsch und wieder echli zue Rueh chunnsch!!
Denk viel a Di und mach mir chli Sorge........

......Ich wuensch Dir ganz e gueti Zyt, heb Dir Sorg und luegsch Dir echli!!
Ganz en liebe Gruess und e dicki Umarmig."

How are you doing??? I very much hope you are getting along and are settling down again!!
I very often think of you and am somewhat concerned........

....... I wish you a very good time, take care [the second part of that sentence actually means the same, just in other words, including "a bit", which would sound silly in English].

Warmest regards and a big hug.

Re: Swiss German to English translations

Thanks Captain (and Faltrad),

I fell a bit sorry for the guy as he has had a rough go of things as of late.
Your translations make a load of sense, knowing what I know.
Thanks again all.

Cheers!

Re: Swiss German to English translations

This was an e-mail but there have been several "real life" meetings including a day or two before this e-mail was sent.

A little demanding are we?

Just a word of advise, people are far less excited to help with transactions if it's blatantly obvious that you're "spying" on someone... Repeatedly.

Re: Should I stay or should go?

We still don't know if you are spying on somebody... An Email addressed to you would be in a language you can understand.

Re: Swiss German to English translations

My apologies if I come across as demanding, it is not my intention to be rude. I changed the title to "should I stay or should I go" in the hopes that my urgency would be apparent without bluntly saying so.

It is a matter of the heart and the recipient knows that I have viewed the e-mail but does not seem concerned because I do not speak Swiss-German. The sender has sent some very "graphic pictures" as well and it is leading me to think that the affair has not ended as my partner has told me.

I am about to spend a substantial amount of money (for me) and make considerable changes in my life. Having this translation would be very beneficial to me while making those decisions.

Again, my apologies. It is not my intention to offend people who's help I seek.

Horrible "german" but here goes.

He doesn't do anything to me, I even hang out with him at his place. Call feda if something's up.Kiss, love you both.

ok babe, take your chance, you'll regret if you don't do what you want. Love you more than anything.

It's not Swiss German but this is the rough gist:

We have sent you a letter regarding your withdrawal notice which you must sign.

Swiss German Translation....help?!

Can anyone assist with a translation of the below?

Many thanks in advance.

"Ich realisier das scho will leider muess ich jetzt mit dä konsequenz lebe. Es wird mich mis lebe lang verfolge. Zwüschedure machts mich halbe chrank. Das ich genau das wo ich so han wele zerstört han also quasi han ich mich sälber zerstört. Ich chan nüme mit dem maa zäme sii wo ich han welä für immer zäme sii. Und es isch nur mini eigeni schuld. Ich het mier chind und e familie mit dem maa gschwünscht, tja, chasch leider nöd ha vera...und bisch ganz sälber schuld. Wie dumm bin ich?!

Dich hani zu tüfst verletzt. Und jetzt muess ich mit derä schuld durchs lebe gah, ich wird die schuld bis zum tod mit mier träge. Das isch alles andere als eifach. Früener oder spöter muess ich mier wohl selber z'verzeihe oder zumindest irgendwie probierä mit dere schuld chöne z'lebe und sie akzeptierä suscht landi no i dä pychiatrie. "

Re: Swiss German to English translations

Oh my, that's heavy stuff. Even translating it hurts. I wouldn't have put it on the 'Net, but you started it. So here we go:

"I do realize that, because, unfortunately, now I have to live with the consequences. It will haunt me for the rest of my life. Now and then it makes me half sick. I destroyed exactly what I had desired, in some way I destroyed myself. I can't be together with the man I wanted to be together forever. And it's my very own fault. I wanted to have children and a family with this man -- sorry Vera, you can't have that, and you are the only one to blame. How stupid am I?

I hurt you deeply. And now I must go through life with this guilt, I shall carry it with me till I die. That's not easy at all. Sooner or later I'll have to forgive myself or at least try to be able to live with that guilt and accept it, otherwise I'll end up in a psychiatric ward."

I feel sorry for both. Let our community know if help is needed.

Re: Swiss German to English translations

I need some help with translation from SG to English - it's kind of personal and not something I want to put out there.

Would anyone be able & willing to assist?
