An English statement is available here http://www.ethlife.ethz.ch/archive_articles/090529_MonteRosa_CSCS-su/index_EN (even though admittedly it fails to mention the dosh that is spent on the machine).

More troubling is the claim that an article is supposed to be written in "Swiss German", happily ignoring the fact that Swiss German to German is something like, ugh, Cockney to Shakespeare's language.

For a real treat of Swiss German try this: http://als.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schweiz

Good luck with feeding it to Translate: http://translate.google.com/translate?prev=hp&hl=en&js=n&u=http%3A%2F%2Fals.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FSchweiz&sl=de&tl=en&history_state0=
