  1. It's been a while since Twitch has become a mass service used here in Catalonia. For years, different users have asked if it would be possible to have the Twitch app available in Catalan, our language.

    It's not hard to have the desktop apps (Win, Mac, Linux, Web) and the mobile apps (Android, iOS, Windows Phone...) translated into Catalan. A lot of other services and apps have included Catalan years ago (services and products from Google, Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla... already include it).

    We understand that Twitch has enough resources to translate their apps and services to Catalan. Why Belgians, Canadians…

  2. 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".

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

    NOTE: that we are not asking to translate the whole platform. We only…

    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.

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

  6. 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!

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. The Czech Republic and Slovakia have more and more new creators, but not only the small ones but also the big ones who have thousands of people on their live broadcasts and would need faster support in their native language.

    Excuse me, but twitch support is often extremely slow and it is unacceptable for streamers of this size to wait for comments for a few days. Therefore, it would be good to introduce Support for CZ / SK as Poland has, for example, but with the difference that a live support chat could only be implemented for twitch partners.

    I…

  10. A tradução da área que mostra a última transmissão realizada, na página do canal, está incorreta.

    Exemplo: https://imgur.com/a/qkqtkE0

    O "de" impede a presença do "há" no texto.

    Sugestões de correção:

    • "Confira essa transmissão de [categoria] de 4 dias atrás"; ou
    • "Confira essa transmissão de [categoria], realizada há 4 dias"

  11. 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.

  12. You give us the option of choosing our language. Why do you use another language (not even English) when sending us an e-mail (billing, payment notice, etc.) ? Please use the language we chose or, if not possible, English).

  13. Every single time when I'm on a new pc and I want to log into Twitch I need to receive a verification code to be able to log in. I'm from Belgium and I live in the Flemish-speaking (Dutch) part. This SMS however is always in French. The majority of the people speak Dutch in Belgium and everything else on Twitch is in either Dutch or English.

  14. Hello, When is twitch going to have a translator? what ever language to streamer's native language.
    It is a little hard when a viewer comes in that speaks/writes in a different language than the streamer. The streamer then has to take their time to go to google and see if they can translate the chat. And most of the time it isn't something civil.

  15. The message says "Det har vært gitt ut [number] gaveabonnement i kanalen!" This translates to "There has been given out [number] gift subscriptions in the channel!" This reads as if the number is the total for all users, not just the user currently gifting.

    I suggest changing it to ""De har gitt ut [number] gaveabonnement i kanalen!", translating to "They have given out [number] gift subscriptions in the channel!"

  17. 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".

  18. Around 110 million people speak Farsi worldwide and in Iran alone, there are more than 28 million gamers according to a national survey.

    There are many Farsi speaking streamers on the site and I'm sure Twitch knows about the number of people using the website within Iran (even though many use VPNs almost all the time to be able to access many websites next to watching twitch). As many have said before, not having the option for the language of the stream is hurtful for all the viewers of the website. No one uses the "Other" language option to find…

  19. I am so surprised with the discrimination against Tamil speaking people around the globe.
    Canada, Malaysia and Singapore has recognised Tamil as one of their country's official languages.
    however, its ridiculous to see 'Twitch' hasn't adopted/ignorant/discriminative towards one of the oldest languages in the world (older than Hindi, Urdu, Hebrew, German, French English, Anglo-Saxon etc)
    Pls update your settings for twitch streamer to allow adding the Tags : Tamil
    Thank you!
