I bet you liked this site and will keep contributing from now on.

I couldn´t help thinking the following, to be honest:

From what you writes you are traveling alone and intend a translator, so this at the very first can appear this travel is a different kind (say, a sexual tourism), I hope not, but...

I couldn´t think of it.

Because you don´t imply you are travelling with the family (at least what I understood).

Second, there are hundreds of travel agencies, in Brazil and abroad that offer this type of service and much more.
Still, in Switzerland English is a "second skin" once the  educational system is comprised of 4 or 5 languages (correct me if I am wrong) and among them, German, English, French, Italian, Roman (if memory serves me well) and Switzerland is a melting pot with a population comprised of Germans, French, Italians, "grisões (in Portuguese by lacking me the English equivalent), Spanish, and Portuguese, to cite some.

And being such a financial heavens, there are many more people there, it´s impossible don´t meet an English speaker, and in English being the international idiom for business, it´s mandatory in companies day to day communication.

One detail worth remembering, in the north region the majority of people don´t speak English, as far as I know.

However I wish you well and enjoy the trip.

Wish well to your family too.

See ya.
