Re: translation plz:-(((

Hmmm,, an automatic translation engine might give you a rought sense at least, but here is a quick translation of it, although the english is not perfect:

A weekly appartment cleaning and changing of the bed sheets are included in the rent. Furthermore we control every other day that the towels and fill up the hand soap. We offer a laundry service for personal laundry at CHF 250.--/Month.

Ignore Dave, he's just being silly. You can use google's translator to help you in the future. http://translate.google.com/translate_t

I do not speak German and use my Coolexon Dictionary's Text Translation to get the following results. Hope it is useful!

The weekly apartment cleaning and changing the bedlinen are included in the rent. We continue to control the bath-towels to each second day and refill hand soap. We offer 250 to the Wasch-Service for private laundry on request for overall CHF. --/Monat on.
