  1. Hey everyone!

    I'm located in Ukraine and got registered in Twitch some time ago.
    Since Twitch does not have Ukrainian localization yet I had to choose English one instead.

    Luckily there is a petition to add Ukrainian locale here:
    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/924619-localization/suggestions/43430019-add-ukrainian-localization-please

    Nevertheless, when I logged in to my Twitch account today, I got an email notification in Russian, so I had to translate it to understand it well.

    I don't know why it happened but I would like to receive notifications either based on my location (Ukraine - in Ukrainian) or based on my profile language (English and when Ukrainian will…

    Hi all!

    Could you please answer a few questions:

    1. What was the language you chose when you created your account?
    2. Have you changed your preferred language at all since then or recently?
    3. Is this the first time you’ve received an email in your non-preferred language, or has it always been sending emails in Russian?
    4. To be clear, if you click on your profile picture, and under “Language”, you have “English” chosen, but are receiving Russian emails?

    Edit:
    5. What is the language you have selected on https://help.twitch.tv?

  2. When a chat is switched to the followers only mode, the message in czech says "Tato místnost je v režimu jen pro předplatitele.", Which says, it is in the subscribers only mode, which is not true.

  3. If a user has gifted 10 subs, the English hover tooltip says: 10 Gift Subs
    In Danish i says: (Antal) Gaveabonnementer-badge

    "Antal" is the Danish word for "count", "number" or "amount".
    It seems like a variable has been translated, which it should not have been.

  4. Приносим свои извинения. Это содержимое более не недоступно.

    Can we delete "не" between "более" and "недоступно"?

  5. Hi. I found some mismatches in translation. Settings -> Advanced -> Video stats: Value translated as "Ценность" but the right word is "Значение"

  6. The german translation of the slow chat is wrong.

    "Benutzer können 10 Mal pro Sekunde Nachrichten senden." translates to 'Users may send 10 messages every second.' instead of 'Users may send messages every 10 seconds.'

  7. "Sørlige" is not a word in danish... I guess you mean "særlige" because that translates to "special". That being said I do not know what the word actually is supposed to be, as I have not seen the English edition of twitch in that category before. The only thing i do know, is that sørlige is not a word.

  8. Like Steam offers, there should be localized posters. Chinese posters, for example, will often have a completely different name and/or different brand logo.

  9. Hello,
    if someone subscribes x months in a row (as an example, I will use 5 months), it says in Polish " Użytkownik zasubskrybował na 5 miesięcy!" which sounds like "A user has subscribed for 5 months ahead!".

    I would suggest changing "Użytknownik zasubskrybował już [X]. miesiąc z rzędu!" where [X] is a number of months and do not forget the period sign after the number.

  10. The Norwegian translation for Disabled is incorrect. According to my Mod, the correct term is: Nedsatt funksjonsevne

  11. If you show more information for the Slow-Chat-Mode the tooltip says: "Users can write 15 messages per second." instead of "Benutzer können alle 15 Sekunden eine Nachricht senden."

  12. When you scroll down to the friend list, it says who they are watching. However, in the Hungarian translation it says: "A következőt nézi:", and there is the name afterwards. This is too long for the name to be displayed, so where the name should there is just "...". It's impossible to see otherwise who they are watching, so I recommend it to change it to "Őt nézi:".

  14. When adding a new app at https://dev.twitch.tv/console/apps/create, the first field in Russian reads "Владелец", which translates to "Owner". In reality, this field is intended for the application name, and it reads just "Name" in English.

    The correct translation would be "Название" ("Name"), or "Название приложения" ("Application name").

    P.S. It's also impossible to change your language while on the dev.twitch.tv subdomain, and you have to navigate to the main site in order to change language.

  17. In Russian localization when you click 'block user' there's a misspelled word in last line of notification message:
    "Перестанете видеть сообщения пользователя в чатах, которы не модерируете."
    Instead of "которы" there should be "которые"
    Ty in advance

  18. "Sidelinjeprat frarådet" while not an actual word, it still is a bad combination of words to describe the actual meaning of the tag No Backseating. We do have a word for Backseat driving, where I guess Backseating comes from. That word is: Baksetesjåfør .
    So a better, but still not a real word, would be Baksetespilling. Frarådet means discouraged, so either keep this or just change to: Ingen baksetespilling . This is a way better translation directly translating to No Backseat Gaming

  19. Hello,
    I am an Italian user, who registered for the first time in Italy. However, I moved to the UK a few years ago and since then I changed every single setting in my Twitch profile (as well as my browser and every other application I use) to English as it has become my primary language.
    However, to this date I keep receiving emails from Twitch in Italian, and there are many pages (like the support one) which are still loaded in Italian despite any browser setting.

    How can I get rid of the Italian language on my account?

    Thanks,…

  20. Wrong translation on german clients when changing account password.
    In the bottom right corner of the change password window the save is translated wrong.
    It shows Sparen - correctly it should display Speichern.
    You really shouldn't use google translator. ;p

    However... hope that helps. ;)

    Cheers.
