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.
Many of us are bilingual or multilingual, and have to write all the languages in the stream title. The ability to have multiple tags would help a lot.
Yes, there's not enough room in the stream title to list all the languages we're learning or using during that stream. The extra tags would help this growing community.
Though it may not have been Twitch's purpose, many language learners have been inspired by chat's ability to have multilingual conversations to actually start learning new languages! To this day the Duolingo community finds chat as one of the funnest ways to further their language learning endeavors! There's a bigger market for language learning on Twitch than it's been realised!
Many of us on twitch are multilingual so being able to add multiple language tags would be a great way to reach a wider audience and to reach people learning languages too!
Change the tags so that when you put multiple tags, it searches it in a AND,OR function instead of AND. For example when you put two different languages as your tag, English and French. It should filter to show streams that either have English OR French tag.
Right now the way it works is, it would ONLY show streams that have both languages enabled on their stream which is ZERO. How are Canadians suppose to filter out their channels to watch when you can only filter English and French separately or any other bilingual viewers that want to watch streams from two different languages without having to constantly change the tags.
Also I remember this was the way that tags worked a long time ago on Twitch. Im not sure who changed it for what reasons.
I would love this. I mostly speak Spanish in my streams but I'm fully bilingual so some times when I'm joking with friends or talking in game chat i speak English. Would love to be able to put that my stream is both in Spanish and English and not just have to add [ESP/ENG] To all my tittles but only be able to set it as Spanish or English in the tags
Please add this!!!
For smaller streamers it would be def. a way to go, to find their audience.It would help a lot...
Please add this feature! I speak English, Spanish and elementary French and would like to be able to have this available so that people aren't thrown off
I speak English, Spanish and German. def might be cool to have this as a feature!
i have this idea about streamers that they are speaking more than one language, people and audience must have the ability to find that streamer not only by a single tag language. it is good that if the streamer speaks many languages that he can place another language tag and people can find him by having their filters to all of those languages. It is fair for streamers that they can ''touch'' more viewers and also to be get searched by this ability of theirs
This, very much this!
Please add that feature. It could be useful, as for me I speak English, German and Russian. It would be nice to show up in that regions while streaming.
I was wondering if we could get the ability to add language tags to our streams. For example if I'm a streamer who speaks both Spanish and English at a native level, then I could set both of those and users who are only looking for a Spanish stream or only looking for an English stream, then my stream will show up for both types of viewers.
Of course, if I abuse this and I don't really speak Spanish, viewers could report this kind of abuse and have my ability to have language tags revoked.
Also, I would propose that streamers not be allowed to use more than three language tags. Why? Czech and Slovak are (mostly) mutually intelligible (if you know one language you know about 70% of the other) and Polish is mildly intelligible with the two languages I just mentioned. I have heard, however, that professional translators never learn to use more than three languages professionally.
I could also see a practical case for streamers like former LoL world champion ToyZ, who speaks English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
As a polyglot speaking 6+ languages this is definitely something I would love to have. This should have automatically been the case, I support this.
This will be a game changer for bilingual streamer! Upvoted!
Please add this feature.
I think using English brings in more viewers than my native language, hence why I usually set my streams' language to English. However, I personally know some people that only know Spanish and would like to watch me, so I speak Spanish for people like them, but doing that when the stream's language is set to English doesn't quite feel right, while setting it to Spanish won't allow English speakers to find me. Every time I'm about to go live it's a hassle to choose between the two.
Bilingual streamers could simply select multiple languages and everyone who speaks at least one of those would easily find them, as well as immediately know that they'll be able to communicate with and understand the streamer in question upon seeing them in the "Browse" tab.
I wonder why this isn't implemented yet.
Je souhaiterait que l'on puisse changer le Tags Anglais Espagnol Francais etc comme on veut parce que woula ca me pete les boules eft donc vraiment faut le changer
