Please do help :) - Swiss German translation

German - Hello people

Due to a lond and complex story that I will spare you from, it would be very important for me if I knew the transaltion of 2 swiss german messages I received, as soon as possible. Its really important for me. Thanks for your help.

1)"da wird eini alt, hä (oder sindere ächt susch es paar hirnzälle abgstorbä"

2)"isch mer au ufgfalle dass mer mini hert erchämpfte gruppe strutzisch muaha"

Again, thanks for your help. And for all the chocolate.

Re: Please do help :) - Swiss German translation

2) I also realised that you are....................my hard fought for group

Re: Please do help :) - Swiss German translation

Gee, thanks a lot
Quick doubts:
1)Is it "her head" only or could it be "his" as well ?
2)Strutzisch in itself means anything ?
Again, thanks a lot.

1) it doesn't indicate his or her, it just says a few brain cells died.
2) Strutzisch means curious, sneaky, inquisitive, prying, snoopy etc. The German word for this is Neugierig.

Re: Please do help :) - Swiss German translation

The sentences as you posted them are in reagards to someone female;

eini > eine ger f>one engl f

sindere>sind Ihr>in this context are her

as for the other word I presume its from the eastern part of Switzerland, e.g ZH,TG,SG or so as I really don't know it,could it maybe be written wrong ?

I also noticed that you are trying to steal my hard fought for group (clique of friends) - moohahah

so muaha is just an evil laugh. Strutze means to steal.

and yes in 1 it is a woman only, cuz it says eini (otherwise it would say eine).

hope this clears up the mystery.

Strutzisch is not ZH or TG. More central maybe?

Re: Please do help :) - Swiss German translation

You people are great, thanks a lot. You solved both riddles, and the answers were quite nice. I might come back with one more in a few days time, if everything goes well.

And, again, thanks.
PS:The writer is from Zurich, if that helps in your discussion
