Translate KDE to Bernese German

Swiss German is a more broad label, but would work as well. Bernese is a 
specific dialect of Swiss German, and would thus be easier to write down 
(as the rules would be clearer).

I didn't know about the language codes. Unfortunately, I don't know of 
any other software project which has these translations, the closest 
that comes to mind is the "alemannic" Wikipedia, which is also written 
in a broad variety and mixture of dialects (including Bernese):

I'm sorry if this isn't of much help. There is a fair amount of Bernese 
literature, and about a million speakers of the dialect, but probably 
very little to no presence in technology at all.
