  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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".

  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.

  6. In very recent news, Twitch has not been complying with the overly strict requirements of censorship required by the site to run in Russia.

    Twitch has been fined now multiple times. Twitch within a month.
    It is easy for us all to see that you will not bend the knee and start censoring the streamers on your platform. However, it's also easy to see this situation won't end anytime soon.

    I think it's wrong to blanket ban Russian streamer and delete their content. Obviously. We have to preserve that history for once the war ends.

    However, the site being allowed…

  7. 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.

  8. First of all, I’d like to remove the eye symbol emote, as you know, some people on twitch are Muslims, and in Islam, eye symbol is haram (not allowed in Islam basically) so I’d like you to remove it immediately, second of all, lower down the ads, people are getting like 5-10 ads these days, yeah it helps out the streamer but still

  9. 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!

  10. The Spanish translation for "While X is offline", at the main page, says "Mientras X está desconectado". This last word is masculine, making the phrase inaccurate for non-masculine streamers.
    I think, in order to be more inclusive, the correct phrase should be something like "Mientras X no tiene conexión" or "Mientras X no está en directo", avoiding words that depend on the streamer's gender identity.
    I didn't see this kind of mistake anywhere else, but I think this should be revised in general.

  11. 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).

  12. 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?

  13. The Romanian translation for the most used word on this website is very odd and difficult to understand: "Redare in flux". You could keep it as "stream" or "live" or use something like "transmisiune".

  14. 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…

  15. English: "# Channel Points awarded to # viewer(s)"
    Korean: "시청자 #명님에게 보생으로 # 채널 포인트를 드렸습니다"

    There is a translation error in Korean at the streamer's dashboard > Predictions.
    It hasn't been fixed since long time ago.

    "보생" must be fixed to "보상" as "awarded"`s translation.
    And "~님" is also awkward for Korean.

    I suggest "시청자 #명에게 보상으로 # 채널 포인트를 드렸습니다"

  16. 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.

  17. Hello, I am audit(name subject to change). I am someone who currently resides in the USA and will be moving soon to Israel. I'd love to have it as an option for the additional immersion and to have some inclusivity for the Israeli people and Hebrew language. It would be nice to have twitch itself in Hebrew, along with a tag to search for people who speak the language! Thanks!

  18. "Unmodded" tag is translated as "Χωρίς εποπτεία", as you can see here https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags/532af76e-eabd-451e-9709-cd1cc7653edb which means "without moderator/supervision" in the Greek language.

    However, on this page, https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags is described as "For streams that feature gameplay from an unmodified version of a game".

    My suggestion is to change it from "Χωρίς εποπτεία" to "Χωρίς τροποποιήσεις", which means "without modifications".

  19. 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.

  20. The green pill that says "SAVE" in the "Save by subscribing for logger" dialog.
    In Finnish version this is mistranslated as "TALLENNA" (as in "save file"). It should be "SÄÄSTÄ" (as in "save money")
