  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. In English there is a tag called "Latina"
    This is incorrectly translated into ラティーナ県 in Japanese, which is a specific state inside of Italy. This should be translated into ラティーナ or らてIn English there is a tag called "Latina"
    This is incorrectly translated into ラティーナ県 in Japanese, which is a specific state inside of Italy.
    This should instead be translated into ラティーナ .

    I have a feeling this is a mistake throughout multiple languages as there was an Italian speaker in my friend's stream who doesn't have anything to do with Italy.
    I can't think of any reason other than…

  3. Buonasera,
    abbiamo di recente notato che nella sezione Impostazioni > Canale della Dashboard, sotto la sezione "Link dei Social Network" il pulsante che in glese dovrebbe visualizzare "Save" è stato tradotto come "Risparmia" ossia con un significato errato. Dovrebbe, a nostro avviso, essere tradotto come "Salva" o "Memorizza".
    Cordiali saluti,

  4. Under the streamers name it says "streaming a rerun" but in Norwegian it says "trømmer en reprise". "trømmer" is not a word in any way shape or form in Norwegian, the correct word is "strømmer". Strømmer en reprise.

    This has been annoying me foooooorever ^^ ty

  6. When you extend a subscription somebody else gifted to you, you get the notification "abc verlängert sein Geschenkabo von xyz". Since there is no way to select pronouns anywhere on twitch and thus impossible to read "...verlängert IHR Geschenkabo...", it'd be nice to simply have "...verlängert DAS Geschenkabo...".

  7. When publishing a vod by hand in the stream manager tab a popup says "Dadurch wird es für die Öffentlichkeit unzugänglich", which means the exakt opposite of publishing something. If something is "unzugänglich" noone has access to it.

    Seems to be a translation error.

  8. • Wherever the word ‘Spórolj’ appears in the settings in Hungarian, it should be ‘Mentés’, because ‘Mentés’ is the right word for saving something which has been change — like a setting. (‘Spórolj’ means saving money.)

    • The word/expression ‘Legjobb pillanatok’ stands for best moments, but this button is for creating a highlight. Therefore the right word in Hungarian is ‘Kiemelés’. (The word ‘Kiemelés’ has already been in use on the Twitch platform for many years before.)

  9. I found a translation error in the creator dash.
    When I edit my social media links the button for 'save' is translated to 'besparen' which means 'to save money' in Dutch. The correct translation here would be "Opslaan"

  10. The common tag 'no backseating' is translated as 'mondje dicht', which means little mouth closed, I have absolutely no clue what the person who made this translation was thinking, probably creative use of Google Translate. There is no Dutch equivalent for 'backseating' so it is used together with the Dutch word for no, which is 'geen': geen backseaten.

    The other one is that the category 'just chatting' is translated as 'gewoon chatten', even though Dutch people like me use 'chatten' to only mean typing in a chat. The word for chatting as in talking out loud in Dutch is praten.…

  11. Regarding Danish: On the expired subscriptions page, where it says "Genoptag dit abonnement... - ...næste abonnentbadge i (x) måneder" It should be "... om (x) måneder", as you have correctly put it in the message, where it is days instead of months.

  12. "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

  13. 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,…

  14. In the dialog that appears when changing password, the button Save, is translated as "Ahorrar" that means save money, the appropriate translation would be "Guardar"

  15. However in my region (still Sweden) I am not able to gamble with channel points. I can only bet on whoever wins with 0 channel points.

    Bad translation, trash translation, pretty silly translation

  16. When someone shares their subscription in chat, this is the message in Swedish:

    "(username) prenumenerade av Nivå 1De har prenumenerat i 20 månader, just nu har de 17 i rad!"

    Firstly, it should be "prenumererade" and "prenumererat" ("r" instead of "n").

    Secondly, "på Nivå 1" instead of "av" and there should be a full stop and space after.

    Fixed: "(username) prenumererade på Nivå 1. De har prenumererat i 20 månader, just nu har de 17 i rad!"

    This is just some examples, there are some more errors when gifting subscriptions.

  17. When opening the subscription window on Twitch, the text will state "SPEICHERN - Länger abbonieren, mehr sparen!" (The more you support, the more you save).

    "Speichern" is a (contextual) incorrect translation for "saving (money)". "speichern" is rather used in a context that means "to record". "Sparen" would be a more suitable translation in this situation, which has also been correctly used in the sentence afterwards.

  19. 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.
