Hallo Scriptor!
Can you help me with this almost endless sentence. I am almost dizzy with it!
"Die Kaffeemaschinen, Tücher, Plakate, Stühle, Tische, Maschinen,
Medikamente, Uhren, Banknoten und sonstigen Errungenschaften der
Schweizer Designgeschichte und -gegenwart in Ehren ? das machen andere
auch; das Programm des Mittelstandes in Ehren ? es ist das Modell, das
sich unter den Gewinnern weltweit durchzusetzen scheint; und die
kulturelle Vielfalt als Lernfeld des Designs ebenfalls in Ehren ? es
ist einer der Vorteile dieser oft beklagten Globalisierung. Design in
der Schweiz hat sich aber in einem Thema ausgezeichnet: Am Berg."
It is part of a book singing the praises of Switzerland, which will be
published in English, German and Japanese.
Thank you, and best regards,

Hello, Leander1!

I can certainly help you. I split up the never-ending sentence into
shorter ones for the translation (the Swiss seem to be just as fond of
writing endless sentences as my German countrymen):

"The coffee makers, draperies, posters, chairs, tables, machines,
medicaments, clocks, banknotes and other achievements in the history
of Swiss design deserve esteem ? others emulate them. The programme
for the medium-sized businesses deserves esteem, too ? it is the one
scheme that seems to prevail among the winners throughout the world.
And the cultural diversity as learning ground for design also deserves
estemm ? it is one of the advantages of this much-maligned
globalisation. However, Swiss design distinguished itself in respect
of one particular theme: The mountain."

I hope this helps! (And I'm now going to work on the second
translation immediately)
Best regards,

Sorry to be so long in replying - I am chronically overworked! Your
translation was great as usual - thank you!
