So other than German, English, Dutch and Arabic I'm still working on my Italian should it be alright or should I put it on hold and switch to something like Polish, Czech, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or Spanish? Which of the above are most needed in Switzerland, whether to work as a translator or a customer support in an international company?

    I’m voting to close this question because it is not about the German language.

In Switzerland the most people (62.5%) speak German (or Swiss-German), but there are three other national-languages: French (22.9%), Italian (8.2%) and Romansh (0.8%). Percent-data are from 10/06/2020

But if you want to work in a international company, you must dominate English. Which other language you still need can’t be said. So this question can‘t be answered.
