Jesus Christ, this is a tough one. Swiss-German is officially dying, and I want to do something against it, so I started translating our applications to Züritüütsch (Zürich-German). The trouble is that I don’t even know proper Züritüütsch to begin with, I grew up with Khûrertütsch. It’s tough, tough, tough.
If you have a good grasp of English and Züritüütsch, want to help me out? The project uses standard-issue gettext .po files, so you can use any of your translator tools. Heck, you can even just pencil your translations on a piece of toilet paper and mail them in.
Contact me and/or check out the source code if you’re interested. Also, if you know Bärndütsch or Bavarian, I’d be equally interested 🙂
Just look at the glorious aura of Swiss-German buttons:
Long live the dead and the dying (languages)!
