  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 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.

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

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

  3. 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!
    If you need help in translation- just contact me on tetragon444@gmail.com.…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  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. 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".

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.…

  12. 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.

  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,
    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.

  16. Dear Sirs,

    I am from Karachi, Pakistan and after the release of Bahrain Servers on AWS. It is requested to the Twitch team to release Bahrain CDNs for Twitch too so that the Middle Eastern countries can stream on low latency with better performance as the nearest servers for Middle eastern countries are Europe: UK, London and Asia: Singapore for Content Delivery.

    There arent any servers in between, but as AWS has already established Bahrain servers 2 years ago, it is requested to you all to do the same so that new content creators from this region can rise up…

  18. 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.'

  20. add the language flemish. i'm tired of having to pick dutch and getting nothing else but channels from the netherlands presented. i'd like to see channels from my own country (Belgium). with this generalisation of dutch, that's as good as impossible. meaning your language recommendations are 99.99% useless.
