Multi language tag on stream dashboard (more than 2 or 3 if possible)
Many people in the world i believe mostly at least bilingual, or even rarely some people speak Trilingual and Multilingual, so in the dashboard let us for streamers to choose what language are we broadcasting. For example "English" and "Chinese or "Korean" and "English" or even rarely maybe? "English" + "Korean" + "German"
Though we have not yet added support for multiple language tags, we have added more than 350 new options that we think may help out with this particular ask.
For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/. Thank you for your feedback and ideas!
We will leave this topic open for now for further discussion around whether this meets the needs of the request.
I hope you'll add the possibility to add more than one language to your stream.
Trying to bump this up: Can't really speak on behalf of everybody but there is quite a substantial amount of bi-lingual people in the EU specially with any mix of German, French, English. Please bring back language tags. You used to have them... and they were quite useful.
Have a nice day!
I really want this to be a thing. I'm Swedish, English is my second language. Although I don't stream now I might in the future and I would love to alternate every now and then and to have both tags for people to find me.
Hello. I'm from Brazil, and before May/2021, I was able to put an "English" tag in my stream. I loved to have some Mexican, US, and many others viewers from other countries. After that "new 350 tags" thing, the "English" (and other languages) tags simply disappeared.
Please Twitch, fix that. I want to be found by many people since I'm a bilingual, thanks.
We asked for a Language option not a Country tag pls! It could be not that hard to allow to add as many languages to our streams as we want! And the search engine should find my Hungarian channel for Hungarians, or on Global page too if I set my streams language to Hungarian + English. And not Hungarian + England tag. Now, you have to enter country filter to get the country you want to watch....or I mean language to watch.
And we are only allowed to add 5 tags. Come on! I will use 3 from 5 only for countries?
What if I say, I would like to have everything in my languages...like the about page, or channel point rewards...on all 4 languages what I speak. I mean the content itself. And not to try push text into that fields on 4 different languages.
while you've added 350+ tags we still can't add more than a language tag.
adding a bilingual tag gives representation to more than 40% of the global population who speak more than one language or multi lingual.
Hey, I'd love to hear your input on this!
So since I am a EU national, we usually speak several languages and not only one - quite fluently so - and therefore, I think it would be a good thing if I could add several Languages for my stream (maybe as a tag?). It would increase discoverability by a multitude and paves way for a cross-boarder international community.
Thank you very much!
As a french person that can also speak in English i would love to get more possibilities with tags, by that i mean getting more languages tags because obviously by default the stream language is set in french so only french people will reach the stream. Which i think is kinda sad in some way. And i think that it could be super cool if we can get that.
In the 'old' twitch UI, whenever a language was set as the stream language, anyone watching from the same country would see that stresm at the top of the page, but the stream would still show in the overall section below. Now people specifically has to remove any language tag to see the overall section, which really hurts discoverability for bi-/multilingual streamers.
I seriously want this to be a feature, please
There is a massive amount of streamers that stream in different langauges at the same time, however it seems that you cant add multiple langauges to your tags. such as, all finnish streamers I watch that support speaking and streaming in english are using the tag "england", due to not having the ability to add a proper English tag. Is there a major concerning reason why this is? pls fix
It would be great if there was an opportunity to set several languages for the stream in the stream manager. Since I know more than 1 languages, I would like to put these 2 languages on my broadcast in order to reach as large an audience as possible.
i totally agree with this idea
I need this for Catalan+Spanish+English, please!
I don't understand why this would be limited in the first place? Who asked for that?
Give the option to add multiple languages in stream manager. A lot of streamers speak more than one language, even during their streams. It would also be nice if a viewer knows he can join the chat in his own language.
A big percentage of streamers speaks more than 2 languages and sadly that generates a conflict when choosing a language to be discover on the directories. Taking for example the fact that if I put my native language(Spanish) and people who are looking streams of the same category but in a specific language(English), sadly those peoples aren't gonna discover my channel even though I can speak English as well. So there is the conflict between what language should I choose everytime I stream even though half of my audience speaks English and the other half even speaks just Spanish or both languages.
I like the idea! I do stream in English and Arabic and would appreciate the multi tags.
'Multilingual', 'Polyglot' or "Language Learning" tags would all be great additions to the new tags. So far the only alternative streamers have is adding extra language information in stream titles, which can't be searched. I try to speak with viewers in any language that I can hold a conversation in and a large portion of my community is also studying multiple languages, so we frequently discuss words and phrases in other languages. Not to mention, since many streams are strictly one language only, this is such an important distinction to make for viewers. This would be a great way for people who share a passion for languages and/or multilingual backgrounds to find eachother!
Totally agree with octagon_sun here. Especially the part about language learning communities. So many people like to help with language learning and it's difficult to distinguish between those who speak the language natively, fluently, or those that are still learning and might still need assistance.
The workarounds are nice, but I feel like language tags could be handled much more elegantly here.
Yep. octagon_sun's response right below is one example I knew could happen but couldn't think of. There we go.
