Huh, there is really no reason for diverging translations. If you feel
like the quality of your translation is appropriate, simply replace
de-DE by de-CH and purge de-CH. I used to contribute to the de-DE
translation, and I reworked one or two times (must be 1 or 1.5 years
ago). After all, we're talking the same language. Maybe you could
clarify what you mean by "helvetisms".
