Swiss German

Just a note regarding Swiss German: What is known as Swiss German is actually a series of dozens of different dialects, some so different from one another that they are mutually incomprehensible.

Swiss German is never spoken as the language of choice in a typical transaction, especially not by the employees of LX, some of whom are French-Swiss or Italian-Swiss who usually don't speak it.

Hoch Deutsch (standard high German) is spoken on Swiss, albeit with a very thick Swiss accent, along with English and French and occasionally Italian (Switzerland's third official language)
