  1. There are several languages that do not have the option to be selected in the "Stream Language". This means that viewers do not have the option to filter and find streams in those languages.

    We need minority languages ​​to also have their place to be able to create content in these languages.

    I would like to ask "EUSKARA" (official language of the Basque country) as an option in "Stream Language".

  2. As a Galician streamer I love to watch other galician streamers. But twitch plataform don't allow me to set that my videos are in Galego because I can't specify that I'm streaming in Galego. I must choose: "Others".

    This situation creates a problem for at least 3.000.000- 4 million people that speak galician because we have no easy method to find videos/streams in our language.

    For that reason, We will really appreciate that twitch adds Galician (Galego) language as an option on Language settings of Live Streams.

  3. The Albanian and Kosovo Twitch community would like their language to be easily accessible through the language tags as either "Albanian" or "Shqip", as it is way more user-friendly and allows for more discoverability. We're currently struggling to find new content creators, although there is a base of gamers and streamers in both Albania and Kosovo. Due to the lack of categorization, creators have a hard time getting exposure to our local audience and viewers can't identify these creators.

    Thank you.

  4. The Swiss Twitch scene is getting bigger and bigger.

    However, since we do not speak/stream German but Swiss German,
    viewers have difficulties to find us on Twitch.

    Would there not be a possibility for Twitch to add the language 'Swiss-German'?

    That would help our community grow a lot and especially for the streamers, so they dont have to change their language.

  5. Pls add Serbian or Balkanian language to stream language, cause every country from former Yugoslavia / Balkan basically talks the same language and have good understandings of it. And there is a lot of streamers / gamers from these countries that would use this tag when streaming. Those countries are Slovenia, Croatia, Bosna and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia. Or maybe the best would be to add those languages one by one.

  6. Add Hebrew as a language option for channels, no one uses the "Other" option. That will help Hebrew speakers to stream more.

  7. The last 2 years, broadcasts in the Kazakh (Qazaq/Казахский/Qazaqşa) language are gaining popularity on YouTube.
    For example (March 2022):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJx_4kwWNvM - 1600+ live peak viewers
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVQBykqCPZg - 2000+ live peak viewers
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHtXj6DDlKQ - 800+ live peak viewers

    Kazakh is now only available on YouTube, so mostly Influencers choose this platform. Although many of the viewers follow the broadcasts on Twitch, as the many CIS esports competitions are broadcast there. Also, there are Twitch streamers who broadcast in Kazakh in the Russian category

    In the filters there is the country of Kazakhstan, but no Kazakh language.

    Goal #1 is to add…

  9. As an Asturian user I love to watch asturian streamers. But Twitch plataform don't allow me to set that my videos are in Asturian because I can't specify that I'm streaming in Asturian I must choose: "Others".

    This situation creates a problem for at least 600,000 people that speak Asturian because we have no easy method to find videos/streams in our language.

  11. Greetings!

    I would like to ask you about adding Belarusian localization and language tag to Twitch.

    Why?
    Because Belarus-speaking community grows every year, and more and more companies are ready to acknowledge that. Among those companies you can find Google, Apple and more.
    Therefore, it would be great if Amazon would join'em in this and add Belarusian language on Twitch. It also will be a great chance to support freedom in our country in nowadays hard situation.
    That would be a big win for our society. Żywie Biełaruś!

  12. Dear Twitch Team,

    Please help to develop the Armenian gaming community, we have a lot of good players who want to stream in Armenian, to communicate and speak Armenian, but there is nowhere such a streaming platform where you can communicate in Armenian, if you could add Armenian to your wonderful platform, we would be very grateful

  13. Twitch please add Azerbaijani language as an option to stream. There are around 40 million Azerbaijanis in the world. Quite often I find my compatriots watching streams of worldwide famous streamers or Turkish streamers. All of my compatriots choose Turkish language as a streaming language for their broadcast, which makes it harder for an Azerbaijani viewers to find their local content creators . Thanks !

  14. Hello there,

    As streamer I made several times streams in Valencià, one of the languages from Spain. I would like to request a new feature letting us be allowed to use it as an official language in the platform.

    There are tons of people that use this language each day and it's the main language in most of the cities or towns from the Valencian Community.

    Please, consider this idea as this would be awesome to give us visibility and have a stronger market of the platform for Valencian people.

    Best regards,

  15. Hello,
    we are finishing our 6th season of our gaming talk show with over 200 oofficial streams and more than 2000 personal streams on the channel /ggtvmk

    It will be very motivational and would appreciate if you can add Macedonian language as Stream language option.

    There are couple more Macedonian streamers that help the growth of Twitch community here in Macedonia.

    Thanks for everything you do for the scene.

    Cheers,
    GGorast

  16. Many languages don't appear in "Stream Language" options, meaning that viewers don't have the ability to filter and find streams in those languages, which is especially important for minority languages like Cornish (Kernewek).

    Minority languages ​​must be supported on Twitch alongside bigger language as the support is more important to them. Please add Cornish/Kernewek, the language of Cornwall/Kernow, as an option in "Stream Language".

  17. Malayalam is the language used by people of Kerala, a southern state of the country India. Malayalam is the official language of Kerala, which is a state with 3.46 crores population (as of 2018).

    Many streamers from Kerala are now a part of Twitch.tv streaming community. Viewers from Kerala have also started increasing day by day. But, it is so hard for a new twitch.tv user to find Malayalam talking streamers.
    It will be good for us Malayalis, aka Keralites, if Twitch adds Malayalam as a language.

    Thank you team for your continued support. Hope this suggestion will be considered.…

  19. I've spoken to latvian streamers who have been told people struggle to find the channels that speak their language.

    This is an accessibility issue for those who have to spend the time scrolling through the 'other' languages in an attempt to watch streams in their languages.

    Simply adding more language categories would solve this issue. Twitch could ask their creators which languages they would like adding and I'm sure it would help many streamers and viewers alike.

  20. Please just add more language categories. It is not hard to type out a few more words to make a world of difference to Twitch users around the world.

    So many promising streamers are locked under "Language: Other", which doesn't let them get the recognition that they deserve and would receive in their own language community.
