Man,Swiss must be a tough language to crack! I had Bing translate the article into English and I then had to translate that translation into something coherent! Thanks for sharing!

Oh man...  :o There is no "Swiss" as there is no "American". People in Switzerland speak either German, French or Italian...

...or English (probably spoken by more Swiss than any of the official languages).

There are several "American" languages. Ever been to Alabama? Ever been to Northern Maine? Or Brooklyn, NY?

Italian, French, Swiss German and Romanic
Tiny country and many languages. And we all get along nicely  ;)
And yes, the article is in High German.
And they even write about Mr. Mellon and his law suit. The writer thinks it will not be succesful...

I have always been impressed by SWISSAIR flight attendants easily and fluently switching among 4 (sometimes 5 ) languages...
