Can I receive "Swiss Review" in, for example, Rumanian?

Can I receive the English version in France?

We will be happy to send you an alternative language version of "Swiss Review" for an annual subscription fee of CHF 50.

Why do I have to pay for a subscription to "Swiss Review" (which is otherwise free) if I want a language version other than the one distributed in my country of residence?

Catering to the individual wishes of our readers entails high administrative costs (the copies need to be manually labeled and prepared for postage) as well as additional spending on postage. We are obliged to charge subscribers in order to cover some of these costs.

Why do Swiss living in Spain not automatically receive the Spanish version?

Because most Swiss in Spain speak German or French rather than Spanish. The language version depends on the language spoken by the largest group of Swiss nationals in the relevant country.

Can I also receive "Swiss Review" if I am not Swiss?

We will be happy to send you a copy in your preferred language. Please find more information in the left column of the "Subscription & Delivery" section of our website.
