Your location is set in Ireland... we are not here to translate for you we are a community for english speaking people living in Switzerland... However, just this once I've done the translation.

Is it the same majorly hot Swiss blonde in Cork that you asked us about last year?

One would think if you really wanted to have your wicked way with her you would have learnt a few words by now

Re: Engliah translate for swiss german sms

I try to translate by meaning and not word by word.

ha di gern
============
I love you


isch gail xi <3
===========
That was cool


danke,
==========
Thanks


dir au,
==========
You too


obwol
==========
Although


, issisch alleg eh grad zmitag,
====================================
It's probably soon going to be lunch time anyway.


wild ewigs lang schlofe wirsh,
======================
Because you've slept all day long (can't translate "wirsh" I think that word has a typo)


du pennsak,
=========
You sleeping-bag


erhol di, guet, und bis glii
===================
recover well and see you soon


selber babaii
=========
You too bye bye (Could also be rude. As in: "Bye bye yourself", or in a rude joking way (Like a joking provocation among friends))

FWIW, I think Lynn got that right the first time ('cause you're gonna sleep a really long time) (wirsh = wirst)
