English term or phrase: swiss-speaking region??
Hola, en un texto publicitario de un software, me encuentro con esta frase:

"XXX's operation places unique demands on their software. They need to be able to print labeling information in three different languages. Based on the location of their bakeries (either in the ​​Swiss-, German- or French-speaking region of the country), they need to be able to select the appropriate combination of languages, and print all information on the label in the proper format.​"


Mi pregunta es, ¿puede referirse a una regón de Suiza donde se hable suizo? ¿O se refiere al alemán suizo? ¿Cómo produzco una traducción precisa y a la vez fiel al original?

¡Gracias!

Switzerland has four languages: German, French, Italian and Romansh and the majority of the population speak a form of German (so many dialects and basically incomprehensible to a a native German speaker), Swiss French is not so bad but has it's variances too ... intonation a bit different but perfectly understandable

  -> de acuerdo Beatriz pero en Suiza domina el alemán en sus varios dialectos, aunque la mayoría de los suizos alemanes hablan Hochdeutsch)

neutral  Chema Nieto Castañón: Efectivamente, el romanche, del cual existen diferentes variedades en Suiza, es una de las cuatro lenguas oficiales ("nacionales") de Suiza, pero no creo que nadie se refiera a éstas (completamente minoritarias en el país) como "suizo".

agree  Marcelo González: We don´t know the linguistic sophistication of the speaker. I would not be at all surprised if this is what s/he meant.
