Comments on LanguagesInSwitzerland

In 2019, I was able to find the top ten languages for Switzerland in Die zehn häufigsten Hauptsprachen der ständigen Wohnbevölkerung, where people could list up to three “main languages” they used. The list only includes people in private households and excludes diplomats and international functionaries.
