Thank you!

Mäni will come/join us on Thursday. He promised to take care of him/it (depends if a person or a thing is taken care of).


Hope it makes sense in the context you are referring to.

"Hello" or "holly" Kammy what are you going to do! Will you reapply or leave!

I can not see the use of exlamation marks instead of question marks.

Wow, screaming on EF.

It should say "z'Züri'. The language is "bündnerisch" because of the "suacht".

And I always wondered why there isn't a button to send general messages to everybody. Would be a lot of fun...I guess.

But ok, it says: "is searching a flat in Zürich"

Re: Swiss german to english translation

It'll be a tad difficult to find an online text translator for Swiss German, because basically it isn't a written but more an oral language, meaning people can write it any way they please to re-create the sound of the spoken dialect (Zurich-, Basel-, Bern-Swiss German etc.)

Just an example:
Grüezi mitenand = Zurich Swiss German
Grüessech mitenang = Bern Swiss German

It's swiss german. If you need translation you can send it to me by PM, as long as it's not a book.

I'm new to this site, and don't really know my way around yet but I was hoping someone would be able to translate this Swiss German for me:

Really appreciate it...

Re: Swiss german to english translation

Hi,

www.translate.google.com is also an option worth considering. You could enter whatever needs to be translated from German to English.

Hope this helps .

Regards.

Apparently, at least it's printed on the ticket which I received... It's after all a traditional german company/establishment
