That is true in theory, but the swiss people are more relaxed in
respect to their friendliness to the english speaking, and afaik.
E.g., the Zürich Insurance renamed *themselve* to Zurich; i have
a CD from »The Zurich String Quintet« (though they seem not to
know exactly how to call themselves).

Not that i really care, since these names are not ment for end
users, as has been clarified multiple times in the last months…
