The World Geodetic System (or WGS) is a worldwide standard for the cartography. The well-known concepts (such as latitude and longitude, for example) are part of this standard.

Yet, in Switzerland, there is a different national standard that is called CH1903 (or Landesvermessung 1903, LV03).

Implementations, in the most widespread programming languages, to convert coordinates from the Swiss standard to WGS1984 are provided by swisstopo. However, the Python one is missing. You can grab it here.
